Rebol/Services: Where, Why...

My understanding is that Rebol/Services was designed to allow dialects to be interchanged on the internet.
Is Rebol/Services still in use by anyone?
Still usable?
Any alternatives?
In anyway similar to Rest?

Most probably not actively in use, however, I liked its concept. It was inspired by Rebol/IOS and maybe a bit by Rugby, RFC aproach done by Maarten.
On the other side, there was also an Universe (upon with Cheyenne app/web server was built), a multiplexing runtime pluggable protocol architecture.
Rebol/Services, as a concepts, could still be used in the future. The Docs are still online at http://rebol.com/docs/services/

Thanks pekr. I think you meant uniserve, not universe.
