Which means people who woudl contribute do not contribute because they can't
ignore the rules. And are worried they dont understand or do someting wrong.
Currently standards are set because scripts are accepted and commented
("better do" etc). If its reaonable, people adopt.
I don't know how strict cpan is.
A style-document is somewhere, aout your three examples. Then i like a lot of
example-scripts in RT-style instead of more rule-documents. IMHO people like
to copy style when beginning. Hmm, eventually rebol.org could mark
RT-style-scripts so people can look up "official" examples when in doubt?
