Not to beat a dead horse here but by far dealing with the Navigators,  
Tink has put more time into his navigator frameworks than I.

Like I said, I made them 2 years ago for a single purpose and that was  
applications I was making. As some of you can see I put my time into  
some other considerable open source projects dealing with AS3 and  

I would like to stay on the good side of Tink because I think we can  
develop some great components in the future. We definitely have two  
different styles which will be very beneficial down the road in my  
opinion. :)

He went for the more data centric abstraction where I stuck more to  
what I was familiar with at the time.

Tink, I would love help get that stuff passed for review if you know  
of anything that needs work. As well, maybe think of implementing a  
couple of the things like close policy if yours don't have it.

What do you think Tink? :)
