They are not the same company. RunRev has a long term and stable 
licensing arrangement with MetaCard (as it was explained to us.)

Scott Raney, who just hours ago replied specifically to this thread, 
probably speaks best for MetaCard, since it is his engine and company. 
With regard to the engine, I guess you could say that he has the last 
word. You might want to go back and read his comments in order to get 
the perspective of the engine maker on the topic. I think his points are 
pretty valid and understandable. If it means that "certain types" of 
applications cannot be practically built in order to help ensure 
financial stability for the two companies, I certainly prefer that over 
the potential loss of the companies to us and by default elimination of 
further development of the tools we use to make our living.
