... as I see it, there are two main obstacles to the adoption of third
party libs/tool in Rebol
1) I guess, in all those languages using a third party lib doesn't
increase the number of files to be installed in any significant way,
whereas in Rebol - in the simplest case - it's an increase by 33% (of my
maths serve me well) (Rebol executable, your script, AND the third party
lib ... ;-)

2) Where? Or in other words, a central repositry where you'll be sure to
find everything is still missing in the mindset of most Rebolers, though I
hope rebol.org will get there.
