[REBOL] Re: Shamless request for improving function speed.

It looks pretty darn good to me. Just a few minor things...
My tests have shown that while making a series to size is and then appending it is fast,
but using 'poke or 'change and reusing the space is even faster--about double and
thats not counting the time saved by not having to allocate the memory.
It seems to take an amazingly minute amount of time in rebol to assign a word to a value.
It is therefore advantageous when using a value more than once, to go ahead and
assign it to a word. This remains true even in cases of the most simple calculations
(ie 1 + 1).
