putting up an on-line class on programming using rebol, and I could use some help on clearifying the distinctions between native, action, and value. 'append is a function! datatype (or value), because it's a Rebol function. For 'parse, native is a C function, not a Rebol function. I don't what the distinction is between action and native value are, except that I can guess that action applies to data objects much like a function calling a member function in a object does in C++?
