If you don't need to output C than you don't output c.  I don't need gif output but photshop allows it for those that do...

Yes, this indeed seems the direction Jerry and Sarah are headed. And  
from the early stage indications, quite exciting!

I'm not anymore a frequent visitor of this list, but I can't remember  
such a feature being asked for in the past. Frankly, I wouldn't want a  
bunch of converted C code. I certainly wouldn't know what to do with  
it. The reason I chose Rev is so I wouldn't have to learn C.
