FWIW, stacks made with MC can be completely interoperable with Rev,
provided you turn off Rev's included dialogs for those that you've
already copied in with MC (answer dialog, ask dialog, etc.), and that
you ignore the unnecessarily alarming wording in Rev's warning dialog.
It turns out that Rev's routine that checks for the existence of stack
names that may conflict with ones it can optionally copy into your
standalone doesn't put quotes around the stack title when it tells you
about it, so if your stack contains MC's "Execution Error" dialog Rev's
"A stack execution error in file /Applications/Rev/
license.rev is already in memory...."
That sounds much more ominous that what's really happening, which is:
"A stack 'Execution Error" in file...."
