I always forget error return (i do not like it).

Thank you for your emulation which made me think to the problem.

It is hard to emulate, but it seems to me simpler to understand: 1) object is cloned as is (with func block copied) 2) new setword coming from spec added to the object context (this should mean that Rebol is internally already able to add new words to an existing context beyond global context) 3) spec block is bound to the expanded context 4) spec block is evaluated and object/self returned
