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.
