[wix-devs] WIXBUG3704 - Allow access to persisted variables from related bundles

I think it's a good idea to persist the variables in the registry. I think
there should be a single source of truth so I don't think they should also
be persisted to the state file.
I'm having trouble coming up with a use case for persisting a variable for
the bundle but not for related bundles. Why shouldn't all persisted
variables be "shared"?
Please write a WIP.
