Hi David: I'll agree that sometimes it seems that RT has "appeared" to market more than it can deliver, and bugs seem to persist, but even if rebol will not work for this particular project, it is likely that you will find other uses for it. I've actually found that rebol is great for "prototyping" and testing algorithms, which I have then implemented in C/C++, and learning rebol has actually improved my "C" coding. Now if I can just find a way to write a C preprocessor macro to express mybigobj->smallerobj->somemethod as mybigobj/smallerobj/somemethod
