[REBOL] Re: Dialecting......

On a completely different track.......
Typically for Business Applications we end up using an RDBMS. I assume that
there is going to be
support for some RDBMS (SqLite, etc.).
Rebol's Block mechanism is very powerful.
The issue with RDBMS is that they are not very supportive naturally to
Object Databases (db4o specifically) stores data directly in object form,
and you need to query the
data - sort of like LINQ in DOTNET.
Given the power of Rebol, I was wondering whether the guys are thinking of a
datastore that would mimic
the natural expressiveness of Rebol and provide a database without the
issues faced by traditional RDBMSes
Of course response time, etc would be a factor, but for small to medium size
datastores this should not be a problem...
Just some thoughts that I wanted to share.....
