[REBOL] Re: ROUND function (like TRUNC, FLOOR, etc...)

good night to you.
My POV is as follows:
...an object has a context, ...
I think, that we can safely say: an object *is* a context. (which is the POV
presented by RT too)
...IIRC Rebol tech. has not used
the word "context" in any official way except for this shortcut
I disagree, have a look at the Bind function. That function (at least for
me) officially defines the meaning of the word "context" in Rebol.
...Such discussion reasonably uses terms
from computing science...
As far as I am concerned, I am only trying to use the word "context" in the
sense represented by the Bind function, not trying to use any Computer
Science meaning. I would guess, that the Rebol meaning differs slightly from
the usual CS meaning. In this sense it may look unlucky to have one word
meaning a (Bind sense) context as well as a function making objects. It
would be perhaps more logical to call the function Make-context or some such

Am I approaching that state in this case?
