[REBOL] Re: Fun with blocks of words (a tad longish)

The above is incorrect. The only problem of USE is not the fact, that USE can "remember" something, but the fact, that USE doesn't "remember" anything. The worst about it is, that USE modifies its second argument, which can deeply confuse users... Cheers Ladislav
