To start with your last question, the solution would be to remove the
Dynamic from within the Export function.

As to your main question: I guess you don't want to use a global
variable? Indeed, that woud defeat the purpose of the module, i.e. to
hide the variable pts from the global scope. I don't have an elegant
solution. Perhaps copying pts to a global variable if it is your
intention to hide pts?
