forward_variables_from(from_scope, variable_list_or_star,

Copies the given variables from the given scope to the local scope if they
exist. This is normally used in the context of templates to use the values of
variables defined in the template invocation to a template-defined target.
The variables in the given variable_list will be copied if they exist in the
given scope or any enclosing scope. If they do not exist, nothing will happen
and they be left undefined in the current scope.
As a special case, if the variable_list is a string with the value of "*",
all variables from the given scope will be copied. "*" only copies variables
set directly on the from_scope, not enclosing ones. Otherwise it would
duplicate all global variables.
When an explicit list of variables is supplied, if the variable exists in the
current (destination) scope already, an error will be thrown. If "*" is
specified, variables in the current scope will be clobbered (the latter is
important because most targets have an implicit configs list, which means it
wouldn't work at all if it didn't clobber).
If variables_to_not_forward_list is non-empty, then it must contains a list
of variable names that will not be forwarded. This is mostly useful when
variable_list_or_star has a value of "*".
