Yeah. Nobody panic. As far as I can tell, the rules haven't changed 
much, the team is aware of the limitations, and RevMobile doesn't break 
them. There is no interpreted layer in a built RevMobile app; Rev 
scripts go directly from RevTalk to binary. We have limitations on using 
"interpreted" commands in our scripts, and they won't be accepted -- 
i.e., we can't use do, value, or any parameters that aren't already 
evaluated before they're sent (see the revmobile docs about that. It's 
not as bad as it sounds.)

Kevin may have more to say about it, but I think the team is way ahead 
of you guys. ;)
