thank you for the notice. Admittedly, I am not well-versed on the topic
of Rebol and related languages. I remember that Kaj de Vos of the
Syllable project spoke very enthusiastic about it when I met him some
time ago. But I have not investigated this language since. So I cannot
really comment on how well it would fit with the concepts of Genode and
which tangible benefits we could gain from it. Now that it is Open
Source, I understand that it would be worth investigating.

If you like to take the first practical steps with porting it to Genode,
I would definitely be happy to assist.

That is a good point. I am having this topic constantly in the back of
my head. We should definitely add it to the list.
