Fortunately, given how far along the Rev Linux engine is, it doesn't
seem it'll come to that.
Regardless of the opportunities or lack thereof one may see with the
world's fastest-growing OS, Rev is already so close to having a really
good engine for Linux that it would cost them much more to abandon it
than simply finish it.
RunRev have characterized the iPhone engine as a separate development
track from the desktop engines. I have to trust Kevin on this when he
says the team can do both, and since I use Rev on my Ubuntu-powered
machine almost daily I can report that warts and all it's coming along
