Excuse my ignorance of the flow implementation to date, but wouldn't it 
make more sense to only expose methods to javascript that are meant to be 
public?  If an implementation issue is meant to be private/package 
protected etc. why is it not handled in java as such and not exposed at all 
to the flow scripting?
