revBrowser madness

Oh, and another thing...

Move your idle routine to the stack script.  If not then
browserNavigateComplete will stop working if you navigate away from
the card and come back.

It's pretty bullet proof on my end once I got it setup in the right manner.

There are no rev events it will process. Anything happening within the bounds of that rect are ignored by Rev. That is why the RevBrowser example draws the rect inside a Rev window, with other controls outside the rect of the video.
