Good question. Just a quick comment, others may wish to expound further.
Paths like functions are "hot", the interpreter tries to fully evaluate them
when encountered. In your case the path evaluates to an . The interpreter
then automatically tries to evaluate the word foobar, resulting in the
error. You can prevent the full evaulation like this:
>> type? :path1
>> type? get/any 'path1
