[REBOL] Re: Function "LAUNCH" - Usage questions

I'd like to point out, that multithreading would only be needed for servers that occasionally do a lot of processing. In most situations, asynchronous I/O is sufficient and simpler to handle. Anyway, I'd really like to have real preemptive multitasking in REBOL, maybe just the ability to spawn N REBOL processes and have them interconnected by a sort of rebol:// scheme more efficient than TCP/IP (for things that need to transfer a lot of data, where using shared memory should be preferred to copying around...).
