Certainly doable for a defined subset of things you could write with
REBOL - provided that subset can map to capabilities available in the
target language. As a matter of fact, that's one of the areas where I
think dialects will be quite useful.
Now, to say generally that you want to be able to convert *any* REBOL
program into any other particular language...that's going to be a darn
lot of work.
