I'm looking for information to help me consider Revolution as an option 
for developing more sophisticated databases. I've just downloaded and 
unlocked the 30-day example version.

I'm very familiar with FileMaker Pro. I'm somewhat familiar with Access.

Is there anything someone can point me to that provides a compare and 
contrast analysis of Revolution to FMP?

Additionally, I've a few questions:

[1] Are there plans to enhance Revolution's AppleEvent awareness? One 
of the features I've benefited from with FMP is its robust 
AppleScripting capability. It has been a life-saver via 
inter-application activities. Automation of graphics generation helped 
us reduce our head-count by 60% and product errors by 98% in the first 
year of implementation. Currently I see few calls available in 
Revolution's AppleScript Dictionary.

[2] If I do development work with the 30-day trial version, can my work 
accomplished in that be opened with the live version? I trust so. But 
just want to be certain.
