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
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.
