IMHO, Rebol is an excellent choice provided that you don't need statistical
computations to enchance your results. Simple parsing for string patterns
can be easily done with 'parse.
However, there is a problem with statistial analysis needed to implement
such features as like keyword and phrase extraction or n-gram and HMM models
simply becouse Rebol lacks proper functions and libraries (eg. chi-square tests).
