OK, there is reason - View depends on X, not all server side systems have X installed. But - what is the problem, as far as View's core is compatible with Core? /Command 2.0 will feature even some of View parts, although not everything is set in stone yet ... Well, but you are right - dynamic component run-time system is a must ... Rebol takes some 500kb and RT decides on compromises - "is it good enough to add xx kb to executable?" e.g. sometimes I feel I would welcome event system in Core too ... but the feature I am looking for is probably asynchronicity/multithreading ...

as far as you have library access, you have most of external systems available, no?

Tk? bah ... :-) Friendly, -pekr-
