[REBOL] Re: evaluation result (or... goodbye)

I've got dangerously close: up to 3500 out of the available 4000 for pre-IOS/link. (Rebol alone takes nearly 2200 so I "only" use 1300). I'll cheerfully admit that part of that is bad design -- I'd do it differently if I was recoding with what I know now. (The application displays a gallery of photos. The user can select the dimensions, eg 5x7. Each photo/VID object needs a name in the workable-but-bad design. If someone wants 50x100 that'd be 5000 names). The application also lets the user add fields to a toy database. Record are Rebol objects, and fields are variables in the objects. If the user adds another 500 unique field names (unlikely, but never underestimate how far a user will go) that'll blow the 4000 limit. If the 2.6 adds substantially to the 2200 variables that 2.5 uses without increasing the 4000 total limit, this application could be due for a rapid rewrite. Sunanda.
