[REBOL] Slight Rebol performace comparison ...

not much of an issue, just kind of competitive joking around performance
with my colleague at my work. He was asked to filter some 1.4 MB text file,
so he created native utility using Visual Objects. He was amazed that
resulting file was generated in some two or three secs, and told me: "Hey,
now try to do it in your famous Rebol, it will last years".
So I hacked very short scripts (just opening direct source and target ports
in line mode), and was interested, if I can run under 5 to 7 secs on the
same machine. The result was, however, a little bit surprising - 1 sec!
I know we can't compare, as both environment used different conditions. I
think that because of progress bar (and so GUI classes), VO app called
myriad of .dlls scattere over the hd :-) But hey, anyway, the speed of
language surprised us both :-)
So ... :-)
