EXAMPLES:
nerdamer.setVar('x', '11');
var x = nerdamer('x*x');
console.log(x.toString());
//nerdamer will use 13 instead of 11
x = nerdamer('x*x', {x: 13});
console.log(x.toString());
//the value will be 121 again since the known value isn't being overridden
x = nerdamer('x*x');
console.log(x.toString());
nerdamer.setVar('x', 'delete');
//since there no longer is a known value it will just be evaluated symbolically
x = nerdamer('x*x');
console.log(x.toString());
