Passing Values to RunRev from an AppleScript

There used to be an AppleScript dictionary for MetaCard. Revolution
lost this somehow. It is possible to put it back. Adding the
dictionary to the Revolution engine is discussed somewhere in the Use
List archives. I wouldn't really recommend it if you don't explicitly
state in the documentation that is distributed with your application
that your application is scriptable. You can do pretty much
everything with the do script statement.
You need to change the application referenced in the "tell" statement
to the name of your standalone, if applicable. Otherwise, you can use
the name "Revolution". Note however that running multiple copies of
Revolution or your standalone may cause unexpected results while
running your script. I think there is a workaround for this by
referencing to a process, but I don't know how this works. (Maybe
someone else knows?)
