Maybe skip-one isn't the best choice of name here because skip-one blk and skip one blk do at least _look_ very similar, but the second line is actually what you were argumenting against... ;-) By the way, your explanation is very reasonable and I won't say anything against it, but Keith is right that Rebol isn't that close to natural languages in this case) and I'm not even a native English speaker myself ;-) But these similarities are what RT emphasizes aren't they?
