[REBOL] Re: On mutability and sameness

No worries. I think the only point I was making was that Joel *may* be mistaking a bug for an esoteric, and hard-to-model, feature. I don't even have much of a problem knowing Rebol has bugs in it (or confusing quirk to use the term Feedback used to describe why "face/data: copy []" won't clear a VID text-list---you have to write "clear face/data"). All software has bugs, and given the speed the Rebol guys are moving, it's astounding there are so few....They write quality code with a vengeance! But I would appreciate (and I know I'm not the first to ask) a bug list.....I've spent an embarrassing amount of time "debugging" (or stumbling over) things like Poking a Tuple or clearing a Text-list or DOing a string. A simple, searchable database of reported problems and known workarounds would help us all. --Colin.
