Well, because when you say:
put 123 into "buffer"
Rev immediately sees "buffer" as a string, not a variable, and therefore
can't "put" anything into it, and so you can't compile the script.
And if you do:
put 123 into value("buffer")
Rev can't compile this either because the value of the string "buffer" is
"buffer" and the script compiler doesn't understand that this is supposed to
be a variable.
