I do agree with you. The introduction of:
a/(1 + 1)
to Rebol would break the rule stating, that #"(" and #")" are delimiters,
which may really turn Rebol inside out.

OTOH, the SELECT way doesn't work in all circumstances where paths are
needed. Summary: if the "delimiter rule" breaking is not acceptable for
Rebol, there must be another simple enough way to do this. I wrote a DO-PATH
function, which at least summarizes the advantages of such approach.
