revTools at startUp - again?

Hi Thomas,

Yep, I know about the Mac bug regarding the menubar. It's already fixed in a
beta version I'm using.

One thing about altPlugin architecture. It's designed to NOT change or
modify ANY part of RR IDE code. I'm pretty careful about ever modifying the
IDE code and only do it when I absolutely have to. I'd rather add a plugin
to do something than change the source of the IDE.

It's probably decent advice to not use plugins that do change the source
code.
