I only claim all versions of LiveCode and versions of Revolution 3.5 or later not all versions of Rev.
You are correct that if using Revolution the extension needs to be set to ".rev". I'll update the web page.

I want people to push it.

Yes it should work there.

Double check the instructions at http://lessons.runrev.com/s/lessons/m/4071/l/21341-how-to-install-custom-user-plugins for the installation of plugins. I would expect your setup to be able to work.
