[REBOL] Re: Viewing two or more copies of the same layout

To explain Gabriele's suggestion a bit...
The idea is that you store the layout spec block in your object, so
it's just a block of data, not a face yet. The call to LAYOUT, which
creates the face, is deferred until you need to view it.
It might be a bit much if you're new to REBOL, but you could also look
at the source for the librarian (the REBOL version, not the web front
end) from REBOL.org. It has a number of views you can switch between,
so it uses tricks like this.
One of the big things to remember about REBOL is that everything is
just data until it is evaluated.
