[REBOL] Associative Data Store Re:(2)

From: rebol:keithdevens at: 18-Sep-2000 10:35

I'm probably going to get beaten up for this :), but if my question is totally absurd, please excuse my ignorance... You seem to put a lot of emphasis on being able to use block!s as keys. Is this really necessary or desired? It seems like an implementation would be easier and/or more efficient if we didn't have to worry about that case. Same for logic! values :) Many other languages get by with just strings for keys, why do we have to be able to use every Rebol data type as a key? Keith
