By default, the filetype is set to "ttxtTEXT" which causes Rev to make
the Finder think that all files it saves are text files. The easiest
solution is to use:
   set the fileType to empty
before saving any files. This forces OS X to make up it's own mind
about the file type, absed on the extension.
