[REBOL] Re: New competition: do you accept the challenge?! :-)

is anyone realising that every one is being smart, but just a few of you
guys are right?
alessandro wanted to get the SAME algorythm... I'm sure if we did the same
kind of optimisations by changing the algorythm, in any language it would
also scale in speed :-)
as allesandro said, only if we have the same algorythm, do the test mean
anything. or only if rebol had such a different paradigm that expressing
the algorythm was a one liner.
such as when we read a web site extract tags and save to a file (a one
liner!) which takes a full page of code in most languages.
I want to do a parse version of the whole algorythm (like I did with another
challenge recently, where my submission shrank the code size by more than
half), I just haven't had time. I do not expect it to be any faster, but
seeing that whole algorythm within a few lines would be cool to see.
