[REBOL] Standardize REBOL? Re:(2)

The language does not have to be "quite stable".
The C language was not very stable at all when we started to standardize it.
Same with C++. There were many conflicting implementations in both cases.
I say this from having served on X3J11, the C standards committee,
during my days as a compiler writer.
I do agree that the process takes
(to take a quote from the movie 6days7nites)
a long, long, long long long ... long! long time.
