Well, that's certainly further than I got with 10.2.

One thing I have done is install Rev on a non-boot volume. (10.3 may
have tightened up permissions on non-boot volumes?) Another is to simply
install Rev in ~/bin (or whatever) for each user account where I need
access. Not very disk efficient, but only user accounts owned by the
license holder will need it.
