head insert/tail "ab" "c"
alias my-append insert/tail
head my-append "ab" "c"

I think it could be a new refinement, like /length
head change/lenght "abc" "def" 2

Now I do:
change-length: func [dest source length][
change dest copy/part source length
head change-length "abc" "def" 2
is copied twice and new memory allocated for it every time. (my real "de"
is 1 Mb long!)
This doesn't seem more fast:
change-length2: function [dest source length][x][
change dest head insert/part clear x source length
head change-length2 "abc" "def" 2
