Yes, but how well is the question. This would have hardcoded into REBOL to be worthwhile,
only minor changes. It would be a good deal thinner than most other programming languages,
least provide a thin layer of protection. I am sure RT has the scheme already, but it
is my guess
that they want to keep things open source for the time being. Why? For one it makes
easier to learn when you can look at other peoples code. Another big point is its also
deal with only text REBOL, instead of the interoperability issues that would be desired
types out there.
