> This is exactly why I feel we should have these. People first instinct, at
least mine was, was to look for an equivalent. Subclassing <s:Rect/> with
convenience setters would go a long way toward reducing frustrations people
have had with migrating. Not everyone is immediately aware of all the
skinning possibilities and new paradigms such as the layout object so
anything we can do to smooth out the migration is a plus. Plus it
illustrates proper use of some of the Spark concepts. Don't see how its a
bad thing. If people really want to keep writing out a few lines for a Rect
as opposed to just writing <s:Spacer width="100" /> then that's their
choice but I think we should have the class available so I'm going to code
one up today.
