Ok, I get it. The problem is that MOLD (as well as PROBE) does not preserve
context binding information at all (MOLD/all does preserve a bit more of it but
One would need to have some kind of access to this information in
order to preserve it, and that would imply to rewrite a modified MOLD from
It is funny to see how this thread finally rejoins the other one on binding :)
I guess that it shows how important this notion is to rebol.
Thanks again !
