I don't think this follows as a consequence of the open source  
announcement. (It was already possible.) But it's an interesting  
notion anyway.

I guess the first question would be "why bother" when you can build  
potentially more powerful standalone apps in Rev anyway that also  
work well with web servers. (But potentially lacking some of those  
cool looking Flex controls. :-)) But there might be an advantage if  
you have to create something that has to run in both a browser and a  
standalone app.
