Alessandro - you have to be new here, no? :-) Look, rebol base is just
one - so - even your View contains sound, shell and library components.
They are locked by license key.
I am trying for at least two years to lobby for all of them being
unlocked. No success yet, though. Hopefully at least sound will come in
next release or so I hope, but I doubt RT will change their mind in
regards to Shell and/or Library ones ...
