I'll add another interesting difference. I'm not an expert of
Python, but I don't think it would be possible to automatically
translate (i.e. compile) REBOL code into Python code, while it
shouldn't be too much difficult to translate Python code into
Python is a scripting language. But REBOL is more than just that;
I've always had a hard time in trying to explain this to other
people, so either I'm not good at explaining it, or most people
does not really understand what a metalanguage is.
