I know you're kidding me Jeff, and that you and the others in the
trenches are doing your best, but, since the door's been opened, I
might mention that REBOL's tendency to pre-announce products has
created a lot of FUD around here. While /COMMAND was simmering no one
wanted to work on other DBMS connections (like say hooking up to MySQL
via TCP). Likewise with the pre-announcement /EXPRESS, independant
developer's aren't going to want to work on something like that either.
I'm sure that is not the intention, but it is the effect.
And, I don't think it's FUD to offer candid advice with specific
suggestions for change.
