I want to say that the finest equivalence is not the finest sameness one can detect inside the limits of rebol language. The finest sameness happens when the evaluation process get exactly the same value in the same series. An equivalence that find the finest sameness should get the unevaluated args and check that the evaluation process ends to the same value in the same series. I do not know if this is "natural". --- Ciao Romano
