I agree that OOP is not the key to rebol-usage-pattern, at the moment ;) But
for large projects it could benefits. Could you further explain your
pattern for object in rebol ?

Each widget should be developped by one person, but I think the coordination
could be from the mailing list...
Let's take an example.
Today I want to implement a widget. I come to the list and say. I have the
time and the interest to build a widget. Now, anybody got ideas on how it
could be done... how it would work... who has already tried it, etc... Let's
share user story. Then the person goes and build the widget, taking in
account what has been discussed, while limiting the widget to what it should
do actually... the basic/generic stuff. That person could become the
coordinator of this widget and widget based upon it's design... etc. Maybe
it's not a good idea, but I think it would produce something good.
democratic will lead us to generic ;)
