Well Joel, what an answer !
I seems you've a lot of experience dealing with this kind of
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 !
