I wonder...  is it possible to use a Rev command to do a snapshot of the
desktop, but only the area that is behind the Rev application using its
rect coordinates?  Then... import that cropped image into the applications
background, making the app appear to be invisible. Hmmm... Can a script do
this magic?
