I stand corrected. Does that mean a future 'PPC native' version?

I do not know how it correct or incorrect for now, but few years ago once i ask about adding arexx support to URLopen, i was told that arexx is depricated or something like that. Probably that discussion even on that forum somewhere, can't remember for now. If that changes since then, then probably author of URLopen can add arexx support as well..

Yes, I remember many statements over a 10 year period in Amiga forums stating that ARexx would not be updated. Obviously those statements were wrong or the policy has changed.

As far as URLOpen goes, the main response to the addition of that command to OS4 was users finding ways to make it work like OpenURL. :-)

Well, you can have an ARexx port and use Lua, it's not language specific (quite contrary to what its name suggests).
