Is there any native support inside rebol binary (similar as encyption
scheme), or just is it plain script implementation (similar to DocKimbel's
one in principle)?

.. correct ... just take care to keep licencing policy simple any clear,
please. There are several of Rebol products already out, containing various
features, I just wonder, how do you want to keep them all consistently
updated. The sooner we will have component system, the better, as then
questions as above one from Marteen) will become history - I will just buy
mySQL component and will be able to use it from Core to View :-) The
question also is - that once component system is available, there will be no
View, no Command, just kernel - Core, with components around ...
btw: are there any discounts, when buying Command for let's say Win32 and
btw2: :-) re font engine - does Win version of Command contain the same
limitation - no VID, no text? If so - why should Win Command users suffer
from some Unix architecture "nonsense"? ;-)
