[REBOL] Re: Private words in objects?

As Gregg said Rebol was designed for smaller projects so there is not much
needs for full featured OOP. But I think such 'protected' feature can be
easily replaced by simple rule (which can be applied even inside a group of
developers which are working on the same project):
-Use specific names for private members. For example:
my-obj: context [
so this way programmer knows what member of object is allowed to change. It
all depends on the team/author discipline ;)
From my exeprience I've never had problems with errors of this kind in Rebol
projects (even though I worked also in strict OOP language based projects)
but this is just my 2cents. Maybe there is lot of people who rely on this
kind of 'error checking'.
