Its great for what it is.  

But it is still a dictionary.  For newer users trying to get proficient, its 
still going to be like trying to improve your Bulgarian from a 
Bulgarian-English dictionary.  You can do it to a limited extent, but its 
going about it the hard way.  And as one poster said earlier, you have to 
know Bulgarian well enough to know what you are looking for before you can 
find it!

What one part of the target market needs is something quite different. They 
need a dictionary of meanings, of tasks.  Then they need an entry which shows 
how to combine various language elements to get the task done.  Without this, 
they'll have a really hard time moving from novice to proficient, and will 
probably give up and go elsewhere.

It is probably not a need which most contributors to this list have, and it 
may be a target market not worth going after.  But Rev does seem to be 
targetting  such users, and this is what it will take to get and keep them.
