something to test out. It's the Alpha release of REBOL/Base.

A few unsets have been trimmed too.

environments and precisely control what functions they initialize. For

all the other protocols?
An excellent idea.
On my very specific measure of start up time, it takes roughly half the time
of Core which takes half the time View.
