Hi, well I once suggested that constraints would be nice to have in Rebol.
And AFAIR Mozart makes extensive use of the constraint pattern. This would
make it possible to make the value of a X position of object B dependent of
the X position of object A. If you now move object A, object B will be moved
These kind of constraints can be set on all values, either through simple
formulas or by calling back a Rebol function, which will return a useable
What would be needed:
1. A multi-way constraint solver (not so easy)
2. A way to assign formulas / Rebol-functions as values to all kind of data.
