RebMail and REEMACS and 1000 Killer Apps would all benefit from a component
architecture. Then components from one application could be plugged into the
other. New applications could be made from the components of other
For example, Plug-ins is a component which allows Plug-ins as described by
Carl on the RebMail list to plug into any Rebol application. Components is a
rebol module that grabs and runs components together much like Plug-ins do,
but less restricted. Site is a component which allows http reception and ftp
sending, allowing a web site (on a free server) to be generated from
messages. Message is a component that allows messages to sent and received
from news, email and so on. Edit, Help etc are all components that would fit
into 1000 Killer Apps, which allow editing of text or viewing of help files.
