Project.attributename__oldvalue in GEL script

Team, we all know that in setting up conditions in a process, Clarity allows us to build an expression to compare an attribute to its old value, prior to changing. It mostly goes by __oldvalue and __newvalue of the attribute.

Is there a way to access these values inside a GEL script? Has anyone experimented with this before?

I'm looking to store the __oldvalue in a temporary variable inside the GEL script and use it for some manipulation and processing. Your thoughts are much appreciated :grin:

Worst case scenario: I will have to go for a DB trigger and use :old and do the processing in the back-end.

But it would be nice if gelly can do this.
