Write yourself a little script that saves the defaultstack, and avoid
the "save" menu item in Rev. Assuming the stack is toplevel and
frontmost, something like this:
set the stackfileversion to "2.4"
save the defaultstack
Rev's "save" menu item does something similar and sets the
stackfileversion before saving, according to the rules you set in
preferences. If Rev's save is broken you can just write your own.
If you have a lot of stacks to convert, put copies of them all in a
single folder. Your script can answer folder, get the files, and run a
repeat loop containing the above lines of script to save each stack in
the list in one go.
Lock messages if you do this, just in case.
