Hi, well there are two issues here:
1. Rebol/XYZ Browser plug-in-able
I think this is a must-have to make Rebol the killer language. Think about
being able to use the fat browsers as home for Rebol (SSL etc. can be used
than) and have the user see a real nice interface inside the browser... no
complaints like: Well, it looks nice but it's not standard, I want to use my
2. Component concepts / protocolls
Stuff like COM XYZ, JavaBeans, CORBA etc. are all component protocolls...
and it's always a all-or-nothing concept. Mixing all these is very hard (if
