I think what hinders the conception of a rebol standard library the most, is the missing of a module system. As long as Rebol doesn't include a module system, it will be hard to handle library. Or, we should decide to use one of the many module handlers floating around (or create one), and decide that this one will have to be used by all library scripts. Kind regards, Ingo
