Well then, I can't wait for a release! :0 It's ok. ;)

Do you mean to say you change the current dir? That is very naughty. If, for whatever reason, your script fails before restoring the current directory, you will have modified the environment. It seems that every man and his dog has made a recursive directory parser (ie. tree). I have made one, but it does not modify the current directory. This is excellent, because my code may fail. If not today, then maybe in future, when a new version of rebol is out. I want to make my code resistant to annoying little things like that. This feature also made it easier to develop. (Of course, we can always wrap possible-crashing code in a try block.) Regards, Anton.
