  Unless I'm mistaken the original request was to integrate 
http://projectsprouts.org/ into the Flex SDK.  And someone else stated 
that Project Sprouts has a Ruby Dependency, which seems to be true based 
on the web site.  I have strong reservations about adding something into 
the Flex SDK that has a dependency to any server side platform.

What you're proposing here is different than the original suggestion, 
but I believe in the same spirit.  Anyway, I can probably be sold on the 
benefit of such a tool, I'm not sure if such a tool belongs in the Flex 
SDK, but I'm not sure.
