Keep in mind that the RevIDE depends on its front and back scripts to run.
Overiding them wholesale may have unintended consequences.

Writing an IDE is a lot of work.  I wonder if there's a more focused way to
apply changes to specific tools, like maybe simply replacing specific
components as Richard Mathewson does.

The script editor is located at:
 ./components/properties palettes/revscripteditor.rev

You could write an installer that renames the original to something like
revscripteditorORIG.rev before copying yours in.  But test carefully! - it
would be a drag to have to reinstall Rev as the result of a bug in a
third-party plug-in.
