You are talking about the RevServer in On-Rev, right? Right now, we have
server-side "Clients" that get installed into the installs of PHP (for
example) that allow PHP on the server to interact in a native way with
Valentina Server (Office and Free). I am not sure if it works the same way
with RevServer or not, or if RevServer allows for third party externals in a
similar way to the desktop variety (or possible to do the server-side client
like we do with PHP). 

We've started a conversation a few times with Runrev (just cc'd someone
because I know we've both lost track of the conversation, thanks for
reminding me) but it might be worth pushing that forward a bit now,
especially if RevServer becomes a customer installable product.

The Free Valentina Server is a special licensed beast for academics and
academic institutions. If you are involved with either, its worth checking
out. Its different from the restrictions with MySQL (we think better
overall, but that's my opinion ;-)).
