Earlier I asked if Apple had such an api, and Klaus answered, "I'm afraid
not :-/"

So, I just assumed they didn't have one. That's the confusion. If they have
one, it seems Rev should be able to implement it.

Ian, sorry, don't use revCopyfile, and especially not revDeleteFile as I
once passed it a empty string and it deleted the contents of my hard drive!

I prefer the "put URL into URL" syntax.
