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 time anyways. If you don't have a company with 20 employes to convert, then such a reference work is indeed a daunting task.

same here!! 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. -MAx
