Thanks for posting this Alex - word of warning and feature request  
for RunRev - or is as ever there a way I haven't spotted?

First the warning - downloading the stack "Networked Address Book"  
from revOnline automatically asked me to locate x,y, z - can't  
remember - to which I naturally said no - then got myslef into an  
endless loop of answer dialogues!

Now the question is  - is there a way to cancel an answer dialogue?  
Command period does not work - unless you are lucky and the script  
loop is long - sometimes I manage to break out. I think it would be  
very useful if there was a way to do this as the only way I know is  
to force quit and loose all your unsaved data!

Easy to do - done it many times myself !

Would love to have a look - but scared to download again now :(

I noticed :)
