It's accessible to all license holders of course, but even a good
scripted solution will be suboptimal. The current implemenation gives
an appearance and behavior inconsistent with other drawing apps and even
other Rev objects, and no implementation can match the simplicity,
robustness, and consistency of an engine based-solution, as all other
object handles are accomplished now. The scripted solution was a fair
workaround to get through the day before the engine acquisition, but now
that they have control over the engine as well it's best to keep engine
things complete and consistent.
The details are already written in Bugzilla report #624. The Rev
Bugzilla database is the living knowledge base of outstanding issues and
feature requests, and its use cannot be recommended strongly enough.
