[REBOL] Re: OODB in Rebol

What is that?
A Is 1000 1000 ReshapeOf 1000000 Random 8000
If this array which contains 1000000 random numbers isn't an object,
then I don't have a clue as to what an object is.
I wouldn't expect in the norm that this object would be held in memory.
If I reference it in further expressions, I would expect the underlying software
to be able to iterate over its elements whether it is in memory or paged to disk.
And if the next expression that I type is something like:
A *= 100
Then, again, the interim result and the modified A should also be "paginated"
if you know what I mean.
The attributes which might be tightly bound to A need not be held on disk, but could.
A:'title' Is 'A whole lot of random numbers'
A:'bgc' 'fgc' Is 'Yellow' 'Blue'
Would someone comment on this?
