IMHO it would be better if REBOL would buy default protect system defined words from overwriting. I like the idea of being able to redefine language but it's too easy for beginners to accidently redefine something vital and cause havoc. Is there a way to know if some word is used in definition other words? something like Ref-count? Although this would not help in case code changes on future versions of REBOL but it could help on sorting out this kind of problems? Joanna
