Aha, good. It is still sluggish though, especially I find the rebtris
hard to play, seems like rebol caches in the input stream, so if I eager
to get a brick down, many of the keypresses will affect the next brick.
This behavious is a must in a text editor or other typing related, but
in a game, this gets very nasty.. lagged keypresses make games damn
annoying :) Perhaps there could a way to tell rebol to use a realtime
approach on inputs for certain objects/windows/whatever?

Yes, indeed... PSI at work as usual :)
