I did. Once upon a time on the wild wild REB I wrote a script that you
could feed a dictionary and then made a "localized " REBOL. Aliasing the
complete dictionary to provide a native (as in a your native language)
REBOL/Dutch was fun to have. I built it for my wife so she could read
some scripts that she was about to use. That worked for her as well.

No. Alias works "better" than set for some values. As you may well know ;-)
