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 .... -pekr-
