I'm not an expert of Python, but I don't think it would be possible to automatically translate (i.e. compile) REBOL code into Python code, while it shouldn't be too much difficult to translate Python code into REBOL code. Python is a scripting language. But REBOL is more than just that; I've always had a hard time in trying to explain this to other people, so either I'm not good at explaining it, or most people does not really understand what a metalanguage is.
