You use \currentmoduleparameter only in t-simpleslides to load a style

the last
one is more like \getvariables (which use rawparameters)

I don't need such a check, it was Olivers idea and I thought about a  
idea how this
can be integrated without introducing a new command which breaks  
backward compatibility.
