I don't see a problem: Monte built an interface into the Rev App Builder 
specifically for such purposes.

Perhaps Monte can chime in to provide an overview of how it works.

I doubt the Rev folks would have a problem, as a Rev license is required 
to use the App Builder -- I think they'd probably support anything that 
increases the number of Rev licenses out there.
