Weather Widget

Some time back there was a brief discussion about building widget-y things
in Rev.  Here's an example of a weather widget, not because it's never been
done, but because it can be done. :-)

Execute the following your message box:

  go url "http://www.tactilemedia.com/download/tmweather.rev"

Using Yahoo Weather RSS, the stack features a translucent window with
Web-supplied image whose display updates every 30 seconds to show current
temperature (F or C), weather conditions, and wind data for the designated
location.  Accepts US Zip codes or location IDs (see
http://weather.yahoo.com/ to find non-US location IDs).

Just something I've been meaning to try for a while.  New users may find
this useful.
