Why does it need to be a refinement? That would lead one to think that SET is a function. Parse has its own dialect, and SET is just a word in that dialect, so it could just be written as: set evaluate .... But then, why introduce new words when we already have REDUCE and DO, whose functions are well known. We could write just: set reduce ... or set do ... It means less learning of new words is necessary. Anton.
