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 ...
