Mark,
I used Revolution a couple of years ago to teach middle school kids 
interested in programming. Then I discovered NetLogo, an agent-based 
modelling system that traces its roots back to the original Logo. It is 
perfect for beginners, and has the advantage of immediate feedback and 
incremental development, just like HyperCard and Rev. It's free and 
being actively developed by the Center for Connected Learning at 
Northwestern University,

I think Rev might benefit from the addition of TG-type controls, but it 
seems like a long shot to me. I have built a tool in Rev to work with 
NetLogo files if anyone does take an interest. (It needs to be updated 
-- I can't keep up with them!)
