Yes, we just need - to allow Rebol to be downloadable and registrable as
plug-in to browsers, to pressing .r to invoke at least new rebol/view
window (not to mention ability to display directly in browser window
would be a great win for rebol public acceptance, as ppl tend to think
that if something lives inside browser's window = it is standard ...).
Alambik uses sound, and 3D - we currently lack both ....
Cyphre reported to me, that one of demos he converted was completed in
Alambic in 2 sec, but in rebol it takes much more time to complete.
We definitely also need 'compile function to speed-up math and bitmap
calculations at least ....
