[REBOL] parse or Re:(7)

Word wrapping in word processors and even email editors makes the definition
of PARAGRAPH given below by Joel questionable, IMHO. Thinking about it, I
recognize the start of a new paragraph in literature by the presence of a
blank or empty line. Thus the sequence of two "new line" control characters
would signal the start of a new PARAGRAPH. I think this is beyond the scope
of the simple-parse approach. The more complex rule based functional
approach developed in this thread by others is required.
I guess the person trying to solve this paragraph parse problem is in the
best position to define what he means by "paragraph". As I recall the
original problem, paragraphs *were* defined "according to Joel".
