Hi, yes please. I got this part running in my framework. Works well, but
I didn't check how good it will scale. But optimization is an other
topic, which I will address after the basic blocks are all working
together and the concept stabilized.

I got this iterator pattern running as well. IMO on of the best ideas
about STL is to seperate the iteration, predicates and functionids. This
is a very flexbile, powerful and dense concept. The nice thing is, it
fits very well into Rebol.

Well it's not that magic. Mainly my idea is to use some central base
from which users can pick pre-defined BO structures. These structures
are not static but give a good first start. The biggest problem today is
that we can't formulate how different address objects for example should
be related. I'm going to address this with BO and a type concept. Robert
