[REBOL] Re: local vars in functions

I think the reason for making words global by default
is simply because it is the natural thing for a newbie
to the language or beginner to use. I think this was
the right decision.. fits with the rebol philosophy..
The "::" solution, i feel, has the benefit of not
getting in the way of beginners but making things more
efficient/less errorprone for the
well - at least it seems that way to me at first
Yeah. I've been wondering why rebol does that....
Could it be better to make any 'word local by
and make that word global optionally with a key word
and maybe another keyword to 'protect it?
I'm sure there is a good reason for the current
approach, but I don't know what it is.
