it can be nice idea, but the purpose is as follows - I want to have an option to download e.g. Sound 1.2.3 component upgrade, I use my cell phone connected to my PDA and I am not interested in downloading whole Rebol just because some bug was fixed in Sound component. So - one file? Good, but there would have to be the option to replace rebol.exe's Sound component by new one :-) -pekr-
