what is the purpose? wasn't there already one package rebol format? My
1) add .zip scheme to rebol - would be loved by many devs. imo ...
2) the question - will 'upgrade command be operational in future once
again? As currently there is several places to download from, and whole
.rcb stuff could be hidden from eyes of ppl downloading/upgrading
3) we should move towards components - it leads us there logically
anyway ;-) We are not just rigid and brave enough in that area. From
Cerebrus example we know, that we can have incremental download (using
XOR). So e.g. if Core 2.5.4 is superset of Base 2.5.4, maybe those with
already having Base in-place, could just download some XY KBs, which
would be XORed against Base to create Core :-)

I can still see it in news section. I think that reference to above
mentioned doc is not on the main site for quite some time ...
