[REBOL] Re: (no subject)

okay so maybe you did suggest it tongue in cheek, but
I still want to do it.
I don't want to win! ( if that's not your tongue in
cheek humour again 8-)
If you know me at all by now Iam not interested in personality battles or winning or
anything Like that.
What Iam interested in and DO try to achieve is trying
to make things better if that's what in my opinion
needs to be done or might be beneficial to be done.
ZERO Indexing and all that nonsense doesn't suit everybody, fair enough I accept that.
However wouldn't it be good to show REBOL strength and
proving it to implement behaviour / functionality that
might be against the original "design" aspirations.
In one of my earliest introductions to REBOL Carl wrote
that it was designed to evolve and that there were NO
reserved or keywords, everything could be redefined if
that was your need.
Well this is my need, my desire, AND some (maybe minority) other peoples. It would be
great if you could help.
All Iam asking is you to guide me in the right direction
as to how best implement / approach the task. I will DO
all the donkey work & all the rest.
I've no desire to be any kind of a victor, I just want
to use the language I love which is REBOL and make it "better" (in my opinion) if I can.
I think a zero-index-patch might be a useful thing of
some utility & help to myself and others, that's all.
This is something I would like to do!

I have to remember to be very careful with my tongue and
cheek around you, I suppose.
This is just more of a useless bandwidth soak. I give up,
Mark. You win. You are the victor.
