      REBOL is indeed a very interesting program, and I think that NoteTab would
      be a good interface for it. However, I'm reluctant to add a special Clip
      command for it before it really does become widespread. I haven't had time
      to look at it in detail, but does it use the StdInput and StdOutput devices
      like Perl and Gawk (especially to make use of its parsing abilities)?
