I agree with Dar on this.

Since I usually answer questions while taking a short break from my work
flow, I would not want to have to 'rework' a response so that it became
crystal clear to someone brand new to Rev.  This includes abbreviations,
syntax preferences, style, and variable naming.  There are so many ways to
do things in xTalk.

Most of the effort of a reply would be editing what I use... and I would
decide not to respond.
