Not to mention putting in effort to create curriculum centered around  
a free platform that won't be free any more.

I know that Rev has said that it will give LiveCode to schools that  
request it, but that's still a barrier to use.  I was very excited  
when revMedia came out; not because my school can't afford revStudio  
-- it can -- but because other schools would be able to start using  
Rev, or at least trying it out.  Not so excited any more....
