Subject Re: RFC - additional registerClassAlias

Serialization has always been a troublesome topic... I'm wondering if
we shouldn't be looking more at JSON now that it's baked into Flash
Player. Going that direction may make Flex more valuable with RESTful
services. Maybe.

Anyway, I guess what I'm trying to say is - what is vector
serialization good for and where would it be used? How much juice are
we going to get for the squeeze?
