very important to handle APIs to systems built in C.
Just reading the first 2 chapters of Stroustrup C++
reference and you see things differently, or his paper

Not sure it's worth it. I thought about building a C++
parser that translates a Rebol script into C++ , for
performance but I don't think it's worth it. You code
in C++ directly for performance and you use Rebol for
In GUIs I think differently, Rebol might do the job so
why spend more time to do the same.
