[REBOL] update on library discussion... :-)
From: moliad::aei::ca at: 11-Nov-2003 4:43
I said I'd reply by sunday, well, 3 days of the flu and fighting a worm attacking my
computer (windows patches, anti virus software install and shortly a firwall), I'm just
now finding the time to check the rebol mailing list.
what's cool is that there has been discussion and even a separate thread which has provided
some code. This just confirms that there is interest.
I am currently preparing an extensive report/analysis/whitepaper on the topic itself,
based on the posts(and private mails) which I have read in the last week.
It will go into detail of different topics regarding pretty much what everyone said,
with more comments from me, and hopefully a renewal on the discussion.
I'll post this on the steel site (since that's what its for ;-).
This, will be available shortly, I'll send a mail with a link when it is ready.
This document will also contain the preliminary specs of the tool and library styleguide
I have so far implemented along with a full list of the things which are already available
in the current version 0.2.0.
here is the current big picture within the document (subject to change):
-What kind of library module are we talking about?
-Relevance of a library/module system & loader within rebol
-Pros and Cons
-Specification of such a system
-RT's support/blessing/involvement in the effort (if any?).
Hope this keeps the interest!

PS: phil beven's mailreader.r application rocks!... that's what I'm now using instead
of outlook. It lacks a few things, but its free of bloat. :-)
