If there were a RunRev Player app, this consideration would be 
non-sequitur and main stacks would not have to be "flash screens" 
that open the real working stack(s).  In building a splash screen to 
open the working files and contain the MC engine, each of us is, in 
effect, creating a custom RunRev Player.  With each new app, we do it 

A generalized RunRev Player would make it unnecessary to design RR 
mainStack "apps" differently from HyperCard stacks, and an extensible 
Home stack would provide a framework for integrating multiple RR 

Why hasn't anyone built a generalized RunRev Player?
