Exactly. So it would fill in only half of the picture, and it is not released and....

... it would be nothing more than a server io engine to me. I already have a very well tested, widely used engine myself: hipe, the one from Rugby. 1) Well tested for almost two years, nice installed base via Rugby. 2) I control it and know it inside-out. The other point is that where Uniserve is a protocol framework that is exactly what I want to move away from with Rebol. The power of messaging and dialects can be used as protocols. The messaging engine will help you with the networking part.

And this is a repeating argument from your side. Why Rugby if we get IOS and RMP (1.5 years ago)? Why not integrate Rugby with Uniserve (last year). Why....? So although I will follow Uniserv with great interest once it becomes publicly available: no, thanks for now. --TPFKAMK
