I though of that, but it is very possible that someone will use self in the global context. even checking if its type is object! isn't completely safe... isn't there a way to probe the current context, one which works whether we are in an object or the global namespace ? I might add a /bind refinement which forces a bind of the created function block to an object. When used, It would implicitly make /revert function differently than when defined 'globally'. As I don't need this functionality right now, I'll put it on the back burner, but if any one DOES need it, I'll raise the priority. I'm pushing slim as the only code I write on right now... so everything else is secondary. I want to start working on STEEL|FORGE SOOOOOO badly. I might start working on a Q&D forge prototype (a closed rebol-coding exclusive toolset with no api) to bootstrap the real application and improve liquid-vid coding speed. cheers! -MAx ------------- Steel project coordinator
