I don't want to sound negative, but what do you need Encap for? Noone will use your script in enterprise if license doesn't allow it. So - what is Encap good for? And after all - you need something to sell. I remember Maarten suggesting forming Rebol e-biz suite. So far, there is very few things which can be actually sold - Rugby, MySQL protocol, XML stuff from Gavin, XML-RPC and maybe a little more. Now go and look at PHP or Python libraries, look what comes for free and shake your ideas once again. Am I dreaming or what? We have few solutions which we can offer Rebol users to replace their Perl/Python/PHP/etc. stuff with, yet you folks think of how to make money of it? I think that that way, we will not really make it .... But if you ask me, if I would be willing to pay, I say - yes, I am crazy enough to spend some money here. If the money is needed to encourage ppl to write scripts, let's just create some system and vote. I will donate: 20USD for PostGressSQL protocol 10 USD for Fast-CGI protocol, both implemented in Rebol level (something along 10USD for faster, bugfree, native library bindings ...) 50 USD for compliant XML, SOAP, UDDI thing. ... maybe I will not even use above features, but potential Rebol e-biz suite would sound much stronger .... ... call me a fanatic now ;-) But now even RT can think of average 100 USD for /Command update * number-of-Commands-sold, and contract someone to do the stuff ... -pekr-
