The biggest "etc" that makes the desktop very difficult to use is that it
won't work with URLs that contain parameters. That's a very big limitation.
Example: my first attempt at making REBOL.org a Rebsite involved this CGI
If you cut'n'paste that into a browser, you'll see that it returns a Reb
Index file that contains a line:
Same program, different parameter. And if you cut'n'paste that, you'll see
that you are drilling down the Script Library one level at a time.
Simple, and -- I thought -- elegant. But it won't work in the Reb desktop
-- try it and you'll see what I mean.
Instead, we had to treat Reb access to REBOL.org like building a static index
-- the Rebsite-build program generates over 100 Reb Index files, each with a
unique name -- and it needs to be rerun each time a script changes. That's
