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 communication: -"Anyone home?" -"Ha, what do you want?" -"Gimme your files" -"No, dismiss!"

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 3.0? Thanks, -pekr-
