Just thought I'd quote it as I believe it means that the language is not
going to be rewritten just provide additions for a little more expressivity.
I personally don't care what is submitted as long as I have the choice to
completely ignore it for writing my scripts and it brings this whole topic
rapidly to a close.
I've seen this whole discussion and related threads as more entertaining
than useful because my preference is to see the language achieve goals
through expression rather than revision. I would have loved to have seen
the creativity, energy and thoughtfullness so far expended on the zero
indexing topic to have been put towards showing people what can be done with
the existing language and to encourage further progress on innovative
applications of this language.
While I've unfortunately not been able to spend as much time as I would like
on the Rebol list, I encourage people to share their insights of what can be
achieved with this language so that we can build off and learn from each
Let's see some applications people. :)
