I'm probably going to catch a log of flamage for this but.... Quite frankly, I will now be surprised if REBOL ever appears as part of Morpheus. The switch to being nothing more than a Gnucleus fork is going to kill Morpheus - why would anyone use an ad-filled, cut-down version of one of the best GPL gnutella clients when they can use the real thing? There is certainly unlikely to be any viable revenue stream from the project now, especially given the continued free-fall in advertising revenues. RT as a company isn't IMO going to get anything out of a partnership with Morpheus now, unless REBOL completely replaces the interface and protocol - and somehow you can persuade people to stop using Gnucleus or Kaazaa and pay to use the new Morpheus client. IMO that's an unattainable target.
