Part of the problem with protect-system-object is that protect does not accept object paths. In addition, /deep had a bug which kept it from recursing into sub-series.

In A95, expressions like this will work:

protect/words/deep [
    system/catalog
    system/standard
    system/dialects
    system/intrinsic
]

Here the /words refinement means "treat the block as a set of words to protect" (not as a block series itself to protect.)

This will help move protect-system-object toward its final form.

Carl, R3 has come such a long way and I think security issues are very important. I just listened to Steve Gibson's Security Now podcast talking about JavaScript and how it must die (tongue in cheek). While listening, I heard mention of some effects that JavaScript can do that Rebol can do as well like redefine functions...

Here is a link to the podcast: http://twit.tv/sn221 Or visit http://www.grc.com/securitynow.htm episode 221 for show transcript.

I find their podcast incredibly interesting and important in the area of security, and I would like for Rebol to be extremely careful of security.
