Robert, on my installation of LIvecode Server, everything you say I've found
to be true, except that I was able to use my preferred suffix .rev instead
of .livecode.

I'm impressed that there are so many things are  *right* and *up to date* in
the docs lately, imho. On this new stuff, there's sure to be discovery
moments for everyone, including the mother ship. We're pioneers here, the
first to use this new version of the server, and I'm frankly quite excited
at the functionality added by these features, many which need be explored
and extrapolated by us.

Runrev is a small company, working at growth in an ever expanding universe
and marketplace. As communicative and involved users, we are helping to
improve and expand the language and systems on the Livecode improve list
every day, and support responds, often within hours.

 I'm currently *grandfathered in* in on the "Improve" list as an enterprise
customer but when it comes time to renew my support contract, I'll be there,
because I like to be on the bleeding edge of this 'Rev world' and, as
several others on the list, consider it a duty to report bugs and anomalies
to the QC database.

It might be unfortunate that all users of livecode are not able to access
the QC database, but I guess support was just getting too much noise in the
entries, and created a 'professional' tier to their services to address
