No easy way at this point. I've seen the occasional request to have
REBOL available as a DLL or static lib, which could be a cool way to
do things, but I don't know if it makes sense for RT.
Depending on your needs, you could write the UI in one tool and then
use some IPC mechanism (e.g. sockets) to send data to a REBOL app for
processing. In some cases that would work well.
