Precisely.  It rarely makes sense to recreate any existing product; it's
almost always cheaper to simply buy a product than to build it from scratch.

But the central question was:  what can Rev learn from the design of iShell?

Since iShell is cited as an accessible UI, perhaps there may be value in
exploring ways of employing Rev's vast capabilities to build a UI that
starts the user with something inspired by the relevant portion of iShell's
design, progessively disclosing additional fetures as needed.
