While that would be a necessity if indeed a RunRev-supplied player 
didn't allow changes, it might be in everyone's best interest to see the 
player made more useful by allowing saves.

If security is the concern it would not be difficult to have an opening 
dialog that asks if the user wants to run with secureMode on or off 
(with a more end-user-oriented description, of course).
