Gavin's stuff is tough to find isn't it? I tried to track it down myself a
couple of months ago. Found it in a PDF -- as an appendix to an academic paper.
There are loads and loads of excellent but lost, or hard to find, REBOl
scripts around. Peter Wood and I have a list of useful scripts embedded in ML
posts. Also, there are loads of good things in the now ex-REBOL Altme world.
All those scripts are, in effect, lost to the wider REBOL community.
I *doubt* that is what the owners' would have wanted. But, without further
confirmation from them, I'd personally wouldn't add someone else's work to the
REBOL.org Library -- tempting though that is.
What we need is an occasional Library volunteer who has the time (and, more
useful, the tenacity) to track down the owners of these little gems and seek
permission to republish them in the Library.
It's on my list of things to do. But in my case, it isn't likely to happen in
any year containing a 4 or a 5.
If someone has got the time to give this a go, please let me know,
