Ah yes - I'd forgotten that RunRev used to honor the same licensing MC did.

It was amazing what some folks came up with within those limits, like 
you did with your musical instruction stacks.

I can understand why RR moved to time-based trials, but for a language 
this rich and unique having RevMedia for free lets people spend much 
more time to really get a feel for what they can do with it.  30 days 
just wasn't enough for a sole-source proprietary language.  A very good 
change, much better than the old scriptLimits-based option.
