with any hobby, if that is what rebol is for you, the ROI comes from
A: the fun/sense of accomplishement/use you have doing it on a personnal level or
B: from the appreciation it will get from others.
if (A) is not clearly present and (B) is not guaranteed, then I usually skim on the project,
because there are many other (A) type projects (which aren't specifically rebol) to fill
If you don't have a company with 20 employes to convert, then such a reference work is
indeed a daunting task.

but I find solace in that persistence pays off, when the end goal is measured to be worth
something i.e. (A) or (B) are guaranteed.
