I wonder too, why we see them as functions, and not abstracted ports?
Today I read another Q&A session with Amiga's TCO Fleecy Moss where he
describes "orthogonal persistence" - I thought to myself - rebol port
abstraction and then suddenly I though - why registry functions are not
simply a port? :-)
