It's unlikely. REBOL 1.0 was very close to Scheme, and Sherman is
a REBOL to Scheme compiler, written in Scheme. It has some
limitations with respect to the interpeted REBOL 1.0, too.
REBOL 2.0 is very different, and is probably more difficult to
translate to Scheme (mainly because it's more powerful :). This
doesn't mean that a translator for a subset of REBOL isn't
possible, but IMHO it wouldn't be very useful. (Not that I am an
expert of Scheme, but I assume compiled Scheme has its
I'd more likely create a new compiled language, if that's really
