[REBOL] rebol weak points (i think) Re:(6)

So, why don't you guys just use the 'compile function?
fast-sort: compile function [data [block!] return: [block!]] [a [integer!]] [...]
print type? :fast-sort
Turns out, you *can* write a compiler for REBOL. However, to do so you need to make
"promises" about a function. You, the programmer, certify that the contents of the function
is indeed compilable (by not using very late bound tricks).
The benefit of the above is that you can use the rest of the REBOL environment for meta
stuff... like preprocessing what you will compile.
