You should be. So am I. That's why I made this change to one file alone, and backed it up. And that file is not going to be used in an implemented project. *But* I have found no documentation on this subject. This should be clarified by the developers. As a side note, I'm always interested in what rebol can do, and one of the most intriguing statments I've come across regarding rebol is: The interface spec is an example of a dialect (sic), it would make for an interesting discussion to examine the interface spec further. thanks tim
