I can't anticipate anything myself, but even though I own my business,
and write much in rebol where it pleases me, that I have to sometimes
serve specific requests from clients (like "try to use a well-know
language like python or perl")
Most compilable (C/C++ for example) and scripting (Perl, python) allow
system calls.As does Java, I believe.
That gives you the opportunity to harness rebol
applications by launching them from other applications.
Messages can be sent from an application to another via tcp/ip, which
rebol 'shines' at. One could then have 'two-way messenging'.
Since CGI programming is stateless, a web 'application' can call on
scripts from any number of language sources. The good 'ol Common
Gateway Interface still does the job....
And I'm still looking for "mod rebol" in apache <grin>
