Well, Francis,  I am running 2.7.2 on OSX and it does not work for me.  The
mainstack opens, but I get "can't find handler  iTunesPlay sPlaylist,
pIndex", which is probably in the iTunes substack.

It looks like the main stack is OK, but the substacks are not a compatible
format.  There could be other problems with the demo, but I have already
tossed the example because I don't have time to figure out what's out of
whack.  Maybe sometime in the future it will come to light.

Anyway, it did not simply download, open, and work, so I'll ignore it for
now.  

I agree that it would have been better if the article told us which versions
of Rev would run the demo, but part of the Rev experience is learning by
experience.

The addition of "do as vbscript" is an exciting one!  I will probably have a
client in the next few months that will need COM and I know I can get it.
