Hi Joel, Great post. Something that interests me is how we go about emulating the behavior of different languages as we work. For example, how would we build constructs in REBOL to emulate what Perl does with auto-sizing arrays, or what would a Perlite/Perler/Perl-monger (proper term?) do to provide protection *against* auto-sizing if it wasn't desired. One of the most pervasive places I've seen this is how people have implemented (or attempted to) design by contract in various languages that didn't support it originally. Thanks for another thoughtful post. -- Gregg
