[REBOL] Re: [ Feature request ] move (correction)

From: antonr:iinet:au at: 14-Aug-2003 11:48

The point Andrew is trying to make is that it's best to test it out first, to see how useful it is, see if there are any bugs - basically to review it properly before requesting it to be implemented natively. Each native we add increases the size and slows down the overall engine, so we should be careful what we add. Ladislav shows that only an insert was needed in two out of the three examples given, and that it was not much extra typing. Only the third example needed an extra function (reduce). So it's a bit unclear why it is needed that much - as a native, anyway. Anton.
