I thought I'd read it in the log text files, but I wasn't at a
computer with 4.0 installed when I wrote that.

Thanks (as always) for your offer of help.  Much appreciated.
However, I found out that Rev 4.0 didn't work as a shell processor
when I tried running some of my Rev shell scripts with 4.0.  As I had
3.5 installed on that computer, I just switched to using that instead.

But I thought it was important to raise this issue about the changes
to the way Rev works in case other people were thinking to use Rev 4
in a cgi environment. In another thread yesterday Viktoras was asking
about virtual servers hosts on the internet where he could install

It was in this context that I wondered about the availability of the
Apache module from on-Rev.  Clearly it's been in use for months now,
but I don't remember seeing that it been made publicly available.
