And what of those who just use Rebol for ci-scripting and the like? It is important to keep the overhead of the interpreter for such scripts to a minimum or the delay while loading, decompressing and starting the interpreter will affect response times. /core is, I'd guess, on the very edge of what is really viable as a run-on-demand cgi interpreter for real systems. Perl is bigger in binary terms but I don't think that has a compressed core. Using /view for cgi scripts is a pointless waste of resources and time IMO.
