Sarah's commandKeyDown trap doesn't seem to work, which is why I'm
puzzled. Marty: Ken's method would work to prevent the user from
quitting Rev, but I was hoping to find a more general method that I
might use to trap various Apple events such as Command-P and Command-
W. Again - I'm sure that I used a solution like Sarah's once upon a
time, but it doesn't seem to work now. Obviously this wasn't an
issue at all in MetaCard...
