I haven't been keeping as close of track of Rodeo as others have - but if
Rodeo takes Rev stacks and exports them as HTML 5, then Id say it does have
a significant role in the Rev universe. That does enable a very desirable
feature, and that could easily make the difference between a sale and a
non-sale for Revolution.

With our Valentina or Franklin 3D, what interfaces with Rev is what we talk
about, or what the value proposition is for Rev users. I wouldn't send out
posts about handling BLOBs with Director on the Rev list.

Maybe its just a matter of trusting Jerry and Sarah, knowing this is an
issue for some, make sure posts are at least somewhat relevant to Rev users
and the rest of us not sweating the small stuff.
