The way I see it, free Player should not have any interactive programing
capability, just minimal ability to run exsting (compiled with decently
priced Rebol/Compiler) scripts. I would prefer player to be as small,
simple and easy to use as possible. And I hope it would contain those
useful ViewPro features like crypto libs and sound..
And If it can't be free, let there be nice discounts for those who have
purchased Rebol/Compiler .. 100USD/runtime is just asking too much when
trying to push thru new technology to people who have used to GCC+Cygwin
generated command line tools. .
