yes, I talked about it with jeff in Express conference. Current plug-in just
knows only how to start Rebol and few other minor things. I told openly RT that
it will not be used at all - we need the ability to live inside of browser

But as you stated - it would definitely BE killer app.

Absolutly agree here. Although I know why ppl want it - because of inner-OS IPC
(like Arexx on Amiga)
