The main Thrift library is written in C++ and that could be wrapped up
in an external if that would be easier then having a native Revolution
library. I think creating an external may be the way to go since it
would be easier to keep a Thrift external in sync with the current
Thrift library (drop in latest C++ files, recompile).
Once we have a Revolution Thrift library (external or pure Revolution)
then creating Revolution source code from IDL files shouldn't be too
bad. The problem is that I don't think companies necessarily
distribute their IDL files. I think they just distribute the source
created from the IDL files; at least I didn't see any IDL files in the
Evernote API distribution. Perhaps a Revolution program that could
parse the C++ files generated by Thrift and automatically create an
external project might be appropriate.
