Hi, I wouldn't care avout portability that much. First it's necessary to
get it work on Windows. It's the majority platform.

I hope RT will spend their time on something else, where the community
really has no chance to do something.

That's true. Such a step should be synced with RT.

People who need printing, and hence use Rebol for something more
sophisticated, shouldn't have a problem to pay for /Pro. Let's remember
that RT will only make money, if /Pro is used. From this point, I think we
need more /Pro scripts.
