[REBOL] Cunning use of [], () & {} in R# and in future? Rebol versions?

From: andrew:martin:colenso:school at: 24-Dec-2003 22:40

It occurred to me as I was writing Rebol code, that it's possible to re-use these characters [], () & {}, in useful ways. I've noticed that when I'm writing block!, paren! & string values, I leave white space before and after the [], () & {} characters. It would be nice to have:
>> X: ["a" "b" "c"]
== ["a" "b" "c"]
>> X[2]
== "b" In other words, by running the block "hard" against the word, it's like: pick X 2 I don't know what use () and {} could have, though. What's your thoughts?
