cases where bind is needed to prevent errors. What I'm really thinking
about are situations, where REBOL's behaviour regarding contexts and
bind is actually contributing towards an elegant solution for a real
I think I remember various parse-based solutions posted to the list,
that utilized bind. This is basically a question to those who
understand _and_ use 'bind to actually solve problems: What do you use
it for? Do you think REBOL's behaviour in those regards is practical?
Are you aware of elegant solutions based on 'bind?
