<major snip> [ Well Joel, what an answer ! I seems you've a lot of experience dealing with this kind of situation ;-) I particularly enjoyed the objections which could be raised ... sound so familiar ! Anyway, you've done a great job here, thanks for that ! There are a lot of arguments I could use in my analysis... About your thoughts concerning the ratio instructions/statement: I had already the feeling the answer was going that way. From there my question to Carl ... I'm happy my feeling seems to be right: the high extensibility of REBOL does not set any upper limit to the ratio. The potential of REBOL gives me still the sensation of putting a first step in an unknown world, where everything is possible. ... Just dreaming ;-)) ... Thanks again for your work ! Cheers, chr== ]
