Is RT providing a codebase to work from?

Is forum index for firefox. I have an idea: Later today I will do some
investigating as to where we can make inquire about plugins.

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.
P.S. While we're brain-storming about FFI for rebol? that could
bring C programmers to rebol like java programmers are going
