[REBOL] C# creater wants to go where REBOL already is

He is examining more declarative programming languages. (This was
slightly embarrassingly for us - at the time we couldn't remember the
name of the best best known of these, Mercury, which has been
recommended to us very warmly, and for which Microsoft is helping
develop a .NET back end. Not wanting to refer to
that Australian one"
we didn't solicit his opinion on Mercury itself.)
You've got to get there without taking away the tools people have
today. The problem with declarative languages is that they've been
domain specific. The trick is finding a combination of declarative and
imperative, and that's not impossible.
Does that sound somewhat like REBOL (or Lisp, for that matter)?
