Have you tried making a bundle out of your app? (I don't know-- does Rev 
create it's OS X standalones as bundles?)

In a Cocoa app, in the bundle, Info.plist,  CFBundleDocumentTypes is a 
dictionary that takes a key CFBundleTypeIconFile. The value is the 
filename "yourfilename.icns", the file you have created with 
IconComposer, which comes with Apple's developer tools. If you don't 
have it I can mail you IconComposer.

I am assuming this method would work for any bundle, not just Cocoa apps.
