I could perhaps filter this for the cases where foxedit loads a
particular PTV into an edit field.

But I cannot in cases where the edit form uses
(:input defaults source=SourcePage :)
and input fields with name=$:Var
Here function InputDefault from scripts/forms.php calls the Qualify

$InputValues['ptv_'.$m[2]] =
    htmlspecialchars(Qualify($source, $m[3]), ENT_NOQUOTES);

I don't understand why Qualify is called, as InputDefault is used to
populate input fields. Values like '{$Title}' will be shown in the
input field as '{Group.Page$Title}' and not as written.
Perhaps this is a bug? To my mind it is an undesirable substitution.
