Supersized exposes two unnecessary global variables with very generic names: api and vars. Moreover, the api global variable is then used in the theme code to hook up to the plugin. This is a horribly bad practice (especially for a third-party plugin) and should be fixed (there should be only one entry point to the library - $.supersized).

For more information on why global variables in JS are evil, see this post:

Same as you.I use this in wordpress,global variables take some conflict with some plugins . So I have to change those global variables ,like api ,vars,theme..., into local variables . Supersized need to do some changes to be peace with other js lib code.

Posted two years ago, and not even a hint of a suggestion that this has been considered? Shame :(
