So since I put it where instructed, and where rev Preferences says to look, why is it "missing"?

I'm not looking to write externals at the moment. This one obviously provides some solutions to rev's shortcomings on Mac OS, so I would like to see what is handled. That way I can save myself a lot of frustration (f'ing and blinding about why doesn't that work) and toil (reinventing perfectly good wheels).

Does this mean that using an external is not just a case of putting it in the appropriate library and Voila!? In that case I will have to look at these lessons… now.
