I realise the advantages of doing it, though like porting REBOL to
Java you'd be piggybacking along on what is your natural competition
- ie, another cross-platform "solution". Tao provide a Java and
their "Media" (GUI, graphics, etc) as well, so they look to me like
direct competition to REBOL. Of course, if Tao would like REBOL
running on Elate, then no problem. (;
