Well, on Windows you can use Folder Options from the control panel or a
Windows Explorer window.  But I haven't done it because I don't really care
for that functionality.

I take it from your comment that the file associations are done
automatically by the installer on Macs?  (Since I know it's not done in
Windows or Linux, then I assumed you are using it on a Mac)

So setting up the MIME types is left up to the user to do manually?
How does the user double-click a .rev file and have it launch Rev?
