I'm sure there are many, but Phil doesn't work for RunRev; he's up to 
his armpits in projects of his own (and some very interesting ones at that).

What he's provided is a useful example of the ease of working with the 
engine on the server, and for the intended audience (himself and 
whomever cares to check it out on this list) it does its job well.

Those who do work for RunRev are no doubt cooking up some really nice 
examples, but I'd imagine they've been so busy putting together the 
underlying technology that they just haven't yet had a spare person to 
sit down and focus on making examples.

I suspect we'll see some very nice examples soon enough....
