You must be high. CLEARLY this is a Lisp-derivative, just from the
surface syntax. (In fact, it is exactly that. It, like so many other
things, started life as a Scheme interpreter w/ a surface m-expression-
ish syntax and addition literal data type constructor syntax. I mean,
literally, it did. Ask Carl et. al. Or Google for it, this was
discussed by somebody somewhere.)
APL my ass. Clearly you snoozed through your "programming language
genealogy" class. J, K, even f-script --- sure. Rebol's a Lisp.
That's obvious to anyone that's ever used either any Lisp or any APL-
