Hi, I hope so ;-). We should make it KISS and Rebol abillity to extend objects, using the XML approach: if you don't understand it just ignore it etc. With this we should get a simple loose coupled collection of objects.

Hmm... I would like to use an application like the knowledge base contained in /Link. Where everyone can comment on objects, data fields, functions etc. For each object, there should exist an object-owner, who manages and coordinates the information. From time to time there should be a feature freeeze and a stable object definition should be released. IMO a how-to style document per object, which describs the object etc. might be helpful. Robert
