[REBOL] Re: Cunning use of [], () & {} in R# and in future? Rebol versions?

Why not simply use path (x/2 in the example above) notation, it saves a character at least. ;) As for finding "other" uses for "[], () & {}", if it makes sense in a certain context then great, but I suspect it could lead to subtle and hard to find errors (especially of the mismatched number of opening / closing xxx type).
