Using Revolution for server-side scripts

Not too sure on the *nix stuff. BUT surely a Rev Appliacation on a server
(Mac, Win, *nix) would provide the necessary functionality... If the app was
self contained and didn't require .lib .dll etc then the remote server
platform would be irrelevant (bar the exe upload !)

Just a thought...
