I think that is the only way - and it should be very fast.

Here's an analogy. Take a photo of the building you live in, get it rinted - now would you be worried about whether you could lift the print off the table because the building is very big? As I understand it objects in REBOL are a collection of words, each word standing in as a symbol to represent the data, not being or containing the data itself. Regards, Brett.
