Not immediately related to RunRev but an enterprising person(s) wrote
a Javascript service which can read a Flash SWF and decompile & run it
in near-realtime.

End result is that it's a little slower than Flash proper.  BUT, the
damn thing works.  And it's open source.

PS: My point is it's probably fairly trivial to do the same for rev
stacks if the right people took a stab at it.  In fact, if the rev web
server could output as JS runtimes then magic would happen WRT to web
apps for mobile.

PSPS: The irony here is that Apple won't allow Flash on smartphones,
in part, because it's slow—now it runs in JS but is even slower.
Hooray!
