One of the most exciting things to me, about REBOL, is imagining the tools
that are going to grow up around it to facilitate the construction of
substantial systems. There are bound to be uses for a "package compiler"
that does what you suggest (and what some existing REBOL tools do to at
least some extent) but I can see many other possibilities as well for
systems that are dynamic and extensible. Imagine a system that has
everything extraneous stripped out of it but maintains stubs so that, in the
event of failure, debugging support could be dynamically loaded.
