Of course if RevPro gets enough market traction (i.e., a large enough 
installed base) then a publisher would be interested. As of now, it 
seems to me that it is far more likely that Dreamcard will achieve that 
level of market penetration sooner because it is going to be sold in a 
more mainstream way rather than through narrower dev channels.
