Regarding mp4 playback, I understand (at least in Rev 2.7.1 which I'm using) 
that mp4 has to be incorporated as a referenced control rather than an 
imported control as mp4 does not import well, at least in 2.7.1.   Assuming that the 
movie is used as a referenced control, how can one build the stack as a 
universal binary or Intel-only standalone?   Is this a feature of later versions of 
Revolution?
