Justification: Requiring a dll for a library is foreign to Rexx programmerscoming from a mainframe background. At the same time, it would be inefficient to mimic VM's automatic handling of the 'RX' prefix and EXECLOAD.

ooRexx would be more useful, and attract more users, if we made it
easier for new users from other environments to become productive
faster.

    I'm not sure I understand what you're asking for here. ::REQUIRES has always had the capability to load Rexx filex containing subroutines. The LIBRARY support is a 4.0 addition specifically for loading external libraries written in native code.
