You're welcome. Anyone trying out MC for the first time should note that 
none of the "rev"-prefixed calls will work, since those are all scripted 
into the Rev IDE; i.e., revPrintField, revGoURL, etc. If you need any of 
that, you'll have to pull the handlers out of Rev and move them into 
your own backscript. We're strictly bare-bones here. :)
