[REBOL] Re: Fun with literal blocks!

clever as always. You understood everything perfectly. My only point against
a (safe) non-WYSIWYG code is, that the code is not as
self-documenting/maintainable as a WYSIWYG code. Moreover, I still think,
that with WYSIWYG I can write anything I would like to without feeling any
restrictions as long, as the GC bug stops messing things in Rebol (moreover,
even with non-WYSIWYG code allowed, I found some examples I would like to
write in Rebol but am not able to as long, as the GC bug "works").
Two more comments:
1) A notion of vNL seems adequate, although If we recall that
the Rebol intepreter is written in C, we can conclude that C (in a sense)
can be used to write self-modifying code too.
2) The WYSIWYG definition I wrote/am promoting is (to be honest) my "mental
model" of your idea:
do to immutable-code! whatever
