I haven't seen any that are packaged up, but this is easy enough to do with a process called encapsulation (aka Encap). Encap basically just makes your script an .exe, protecting the source--though not compiled. I have heard of people using this, but I dont have links to any commercial or shareware products. I think the majority of stuff produced so far is freeware, and I imagine many custom applications have been built too. I should be beginning my first venture using REBOL/View in a few weeks. I would be using C for the high speed image processing and hardware control, and View for the user interface and networking. I dont plan on using Encap though, as hidden source is not important on this one.

REBOL uses your systems browser to view webpages. I am sure many have considered writing one in REBOL. I have avoided the project by convincing myself that after completing such a project, I would be too old to enjoy it.

Also check out REBOL/Alliance. About $500 a year or so. Sounded like a good deal to me, but I cannot recall the details.

Not easily, but its defineately within its capabilities.
