In few years, native to mezzanine level ratio will be 90:10 imo ....
once we get all those .mp3, .avi, etc support - there will be just few
mezzanine level functions to support those, while the rest will be
present in native mode in .exe itself. So, we will talk about it once
again as you will be pushed to download 2meg new rebol.exe, just because
of one of components, which just takes some 100kb or so ....
I am not pushing RT to do it right now. Rebol/base is good indication
they do care about efficiency. We mostly can't run Rebol on most of
current mobile devices, but once the time will come, better granularity
is always a win, if done in a clever way ...
