And you won't dissapoint me, I was aware of this. The fact remains that RT
*MUST* have some amazing eye candy or people just won't go for it. Carl is
aware of this, there is a reason it taken 20 to get REBOL to the point it is
at right now, he *IS* going to make REBOL the *MOST* powerful eve candy
enginge *EVER*, although it might be him years from now to before REBOL is
PS The wait will be well worth it. The good things in life don't come easy.
