In closing, if I knew ActionScript had a future and I was rich and had  
a bunch of geek friends that I played music with, I would start an  
opensource IDE using the Eclipse platform and the new Falcon compiler  
and start all over taking a minimalistic approach.

No kitchen sink, just absolutely required functionality. We would then  
be in control of our own universe and anybody that wanted to use it,  
extend it, hate it, love it would be welcome since it would be the  
Apache Flex IDE plugin. ;-)
