Problems in Markup.js accessing variable from the root when inside a loop

I'm using Markup.JS ( https://github.com/adammark/Markup.js ), and it works well for the most of it. The problem I'm having, is accessing a variable from the parent loop. Here is the object that gets passed to it:

The template code is:

This works here: {{perms.link_modify}}

    <td><a href="{{detailed_url}}" target="_blank">{{Title}}</a></td>
    <td>{{if URL}}
            <a href="{{URL}}" target="_blank">{{URL}}</a>
        {{if isValidated}}
            <!-- doesn't have a value here -->
            foo: {{perms.link_modify}}
            <!-- not relevent to question -->

When run, this part:

            foo: {{perms.link_modify}}

Comes up as ??? (non-recognised variable). The problem seems to be that it's not realising its meant to be coming from the root (not inside the loop itself). Is there a way to tell it to go up one level when looking? (hopefully that makes sense!)

FWIW, I'm aware I can just copy the value of "perms" into the loop values, but this means repeating the same data over and over, and seems a bit of a messy hack (especially if there are 100's of items in the loop, as perms would need to be repeated in every one)

UPDATE: I just found this post: https://github.com/adammark/Markup.js/pull/51/files?diff=split&short_path=04c6e90

I'm on version 1.5.21, so I'm trying to see how to implement it (as it's not released)

OK, so while it seems this isn't possible with the current release (v1.5.21), it is possible with this hack:


I've applied this fix, and it works well for me. I tried to post a PasteBin with the full code in, but it won't let me (as I've not posted any code directly, which would be too long-winded)
