Only this? Well: everything was clear from the beginning. :-)

I agree. I should like at least to use compose on path:
compose a/(b) ;== a/1
and get-word in this case:
>> x: func [/a][a]
>> b: 'a;== a
>> x/:b ;==true
Now the latter print none as it would called without any refinement and this
seems to me a bug.

Is a too radical proposal the following?
[[a] 2]/[a] ; ==2
[a 2 b 3]/b ; ==3
a: [[a] 1 [b] 2]
Going in this direction we'll can embed a whole Rebol program in a path!
instead of a block! :-)
