Once upon a time I used to daydream of a technology merge with Rebol and 
LiveCode.  Probably not in any way compatible under the hood, and 
chances are you and I may be the only two people in either camp who 
might enjoy such a chimera.  But it was a pleasant dream just the same. 
  Carl seems like a fascinating person, likely very excellent dinner

I'm not so sure.  At first I was, but after Mark and Mark explained how 
common the ? convention is elsewhere I'm inclined to think that the most 
important thing is that the library works as *you* want it to, and if 
others learn a thing or two along the way as I did so much the better.
