Is RT providing a codebase to work from?

I've programmed in C for a long time. However I would be more valuable as a unit tester as opposed to writing code from scratch.... given my length of time away. I will check further for programmers. :-) While we are on the topic of being little-known but with great merit, check out the dynace system which sits "on top of" ansi C It's been around a *long* time, but pretty much employed by the developer's company, with a *small* user base outside of the company, I believe, but is very mature. OOP has many merits for team development, but C++ drives me crazy with header file stuff. (See comments in dynace site about header files). I'll post again once I get time to sniff around firefox forums a bit. tim P.S. While we're brain-storming about FFI for rebol? that could bring C programmers to rebol like java programmers are going to jython.
