Yep yep =)
There's another point - RT is greatly complicating things by offering ever
more 'combinations' of features - this is bound to cause BIG problems in the
future. Much better for both them and us to offer one comprehensive package
that can run ANY Rebol code. Is it a language? A set of libraries? A GUI
toolset? An O/S abstraction layer? A shell? I dunno. The idea of picking
your own functionality may seem appealing on a very cursory basis, but it
just doesn't scale up to anything serious.
I don't want to be constantly telling my clients "no, no, you've got the
wrong Rebol. I know it's current, and it works for your other rebol app, but
it won't work for ours'. Java versioning is bad enough... Ah, the beauty of
a true compiler.
