Knowing about the My Revolution folder

Hi Devin,

Card 1 of the 'revMenubar' stack references a 
'revEnvironmentUserPluginsPath()' function to get the user plugins path, 
but I haven't been able to find where that function is located. I 
created a Q&D tool to silently open all stacks in Rev's 'Toolset' 
folder, then did a Find & Replace search on all open stack files for 
'revEnvironmentUserPluginsPath' but to no avail. Maybe you'll have more
