Yes, I published a droplet on the USer Contributions section of the Rev 
web site which allows you to set the file type & creator of a single 
file or a folder of files.

If you are using a recent version of OS X, the contextual menu for a 
document file has an "Open with..." menu item that allows you to 
specify what to use. Another option is to open Revolution and drop the 
document on top of the application icon, either in the Finder or in the 
Dock. Then as Rob says, saving again will save that info with the file.
Get Info in OS X also allows you to specify the associated application 
and set it for all files of the specified type.
