That's the main point. You see a little bit of trick here, a nice hack
there but no-one explains in full depth e.g. REBOL's main execution
model (well, how about the purity and simplicity of the top level LISP
loop, taught at respected programming courses as a model!). Why
has droppped Carl the earlier stack model (borrowed from Scheme) and
what are the insigths of this new one?

On samples: there are so many active participants here, why not to
start a CRAN (Comprehensive REBOL Archive Network) in the taste of
CPAN (Perl , grrrrrr!) ?

But what a level of anticipation comes shining on you when after
of trial-and-error code modifications (tiny things DO
matter a lot in REBOL being such a compact language) you get your
layout running! :-)

Is "write %system.dis mold system" not dirty enough ? ;-)
