I guess, by the silence from my earlier post (see above), that the 
likelihood of doing what I propose in the Revolution-Valentina 
environment is rather slim?

Or maybe I'm just not explaining it correctly?

What is the relationship between Valentina and Revolution in the first

using Revolution-Valentina?

Thanks,
