Indeed, and especially so for distributed computing. Just protecting
your REBOL words can stop others' scripts from running, never mind

I've not had much of a look at them, but good styles should allow you
to chose a style that suites your system. Graphic-heavy and with
plenty of effects if your system can handle it, or plain and simple
if not. I don't think people should be forced to use specific skins
with specific scripts, though obviously defaults should be allowed.

Ideally the script writer shouldn't need to think about skins unless
they want to, the choice of which to use for any particular script
really being the user's job.
