This particular example does not seem too far off for REBOL at all :^)
>From what I see his example treats the xml strings as a tree of nodes and
attibutes with fairly simple operations applied to the trees. I would expect
it to be feasible and not too difficult to program as a dialect in REBOL.
The language part would be the easy bit for REBOL, the choice of underlying
representation supporting flexible and fast operations is the the trickier
part - had already been thinking about it. ;-)
