That's platform dependance. If REBOL/View was designed with the
Amiga chipset in mind, it would probably be quite different and
would be fast on the Amigas, but not really fast on the other
systems. It was instead designed with an abstact system in mind;
probably that was too abstract, and /View is using only a little
of the power of our computers.

I was referring to the layering engine. Surely /View can be
enhanched a lot more than it is now, but the layering engine
already has a lot of effects...
