Seems like a great solution to me:  his team doesn't have to replicate 
all of Rev's tools, and Rev sells more licenses.  Win-win. :)

Terry, you can override nearly any message by trapping it in a 
frontScript handler inserted into the message path after Rev loads. 
Plugins generally work well for this as they're loaded after Rev's own
