Betterrev re-write in something that works

Drop Wizard might be - but I want to avoid the same issue we had with
Play/Akka and its ecosystem - which is/was that developers struggled to
pick up that stack as well as the core application itself. I'm concerned
that there's a few Red Bus factors, e.g. The build (me), knowledge of Play
(sort of a couple of us), Akka (again a few). We've spent far to many hack
days explaining the core tech as opposed to building functionality. I think
if we want broader volunteer adoption we need to go with a more common dare
I say it stds based stack.
I've calmed down somewhat since nearly rage quitting on Friday ;-). I'll
give a move to Java EE 7 a go with Ben (he's recently done a project in
anger on there, so combined with my JAva EE 6 javacountdown knowledge we
should be able to port it). I'll do this is in a separate branch of course
and I may yet bravely return to the Play version (but since it's completely
broken our CRUD with the latest release, colour me not so impressed).
Hand on heart - I take the blame for this, it's the sort of tech evaluation
that we preach which we didn't run ourselves for this project.
