Ha! :-)) Well, I know it was planned, but I also remember Jeff stating
something about technical difficulty of implementation thru all the
platforms (or was it API limiting the functionality needed?)
Maybe now as main Rebol products are finally out, you or Carl could outline
what is planned for coming future? E.g. modules - 3.0, components - 3.5,
sound - 2.6 ;-) etc :-)
