To Rev or not to Rev

I think by that classification Rev _is_ object-oriented:  
"ObjectOrientedProgramming. A program execution is regarded as a  
physical model, simulating the behavior of either a real or imaginary  
part of the world." Sounds like Rev to me.

Nevertheless, I always refer people to another quote on the same web  
site -- Ward Cunningham's regarding HyperCard and OO: "Sure HyperCard  
is object oriented. You just don't get to pick the objects."

Setting those aside, Rev lacks several characteristics most people  
consider inherent to OO. That doesn't make it bad or good, necessarily.
