in the specified case the solution using REDUCE is a little bit shorter:
b3: func [n][return reduce [n n]]

Subject: [REBOL] FAQ: How to return a block with evaluated value ?
Is it OK if I post some short Q&A about Rebol to the list for validation ?
Here is an example. I have one more to come. I will continue depending on
the feed back I will get.
How to return a block with evaluated value ?
Problem illustration :
>> b: func [n][return [n n]]
>> b 3
== [n n]
The result of b 3 is [n n] where one obviously expects [3 3].
Problem resolution :
>> new-b: func [n][return compose [(n) (n)]]
>> new-b 3
== [3 3]
Compose forces the evaluation of the parens (n).
