Agreed. Though I suspect SourceForge is so vast as to make it difficult for
a newbie to locate Rev stuff.

Clearly, from comments on this list, this idea has been toyed with. I have
both the server space and a domain name that can do it, but I won't move
forward until I either ascertain nobody is going to do it or that efforts to
do it don't go anywhere. Then again - I might decide just to go ahead with
it. If the community indicates I should go ahead then I'll just do it
