Actually it's the opposite: an IDE is just a collection of stacks, but
all stacks need the engine to run, and need a licensed engine to edit
So regardless of whether the Rev IDE is running, you still need a Rev
license to edit scripts.
That's the beauty of it: RunRev can watch a thousand flowers bloom (as
Scott Raney used to say), and still all roads lead back to Rev.
Any third-party IDE must rely on a Rev sale to be operational. A
win-win-win for all....
