Subject Re: Pushing Flex components thorough the GPU

yup that would be awesome!  Especially because 
Stage3D will be supported on mobile in the near future. 
I've seen demo's on tablets of that.

So it might solve performance problems that we experience in flex
for mobile now.

So if Alex could ask Thibault if he can fix accessibility stuff for 
Stage3D (and then Starling) we're all set!  ;-)
