If no one is asking (or buying...) for them, then it's quite
obvious that they will want to drop them. I agree that
multiplatformness is one of the most important points of REBOL,
but they can't just support *everything*, so they need users to
help them prioritize.

How many Amiga REBOL users are there?
Again, I agree that more platforms = better, but if the price to
pay is having View at 1.2.1 for three years, then please not.
