Thanks, this helped me much!

So the solution is to use "eval", which seems to be interpreted by

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#+name: test1
#+begin_src emacs-lisp :var x="foo"

#+name: test2
#+begin_src emacs-lisp :var z="bar"
  (let ((y (org-sbe test1 (x (eval z)))))

#+results: test2
: bar

#+call: test2(z="baz")

: baz
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I still would really like what can (and cannot) be done with sbe, but
this should be enough to let me make progress.

Thanks again,
