Ha! You are right. I just today thought of new generation of protocols.
During the first "handshake" phase rebol clients would exchange
init-objects, containing info like encryption, compression (yes or no), or
even parser gramatics. Then we could easily have kind of following
-"Ha, what do you want?"
-"Gimme your files"
>> error: You were kicked from port xyz :-)
Carl, there is still many areas left for Core improvement - could you
enlighten us a little bit what do you plant to solve/reimplement/add for
