On-Rev desktop client

The absence of an on-rev desktop client is one thing that pushed me 
(hard!) toward doing all 'real' processing in the scripts of stacks that 
the .lc page 'starts using'. That way I can do all my server programming 
in the IDE.

Of course my approach may not be optimum if you organizing your .lc page 
code like PHP.
