I agree Omar, I would also add that anything that is quite new could  
use the org.apache.flex which would also be a bold preliminary  
statement for those getting into the whiteboard. There would be NO  
DOUBT where this new code is coming from.

Also, I know this is going to be debated to death in the future and  
some will say oh, the org.apache is going to add bytes to the SWF, oh  
I can't type that much, you get this hint.

So it will be interesting where this one ends up. Although I would  
love to at least ask a lot of the whiteboard contributors to think  
about using the org.apache in there experiments so any of the code in  
the whiteboard floating around at least has a tag back to our project.
