I'd have to think about that for a while. I do think it could be a handy
notation, but it would also tighten the lexical rules a bit more, which
could have side effects on future development.
Re: formatting for output.
I agree that this is an important, and missing, piece of the REBOL puzzle. I
have JUSTIFY and ROUND functions that I use, but only a few notes about a
FORMAT function and dialect. Eric Long's format.r dialect didn't resonate
with me, but that's just me.
