Hi Frank,

I was just looking at your code today in GIT, all I can say is what a  
great job coding that!!! Seriously I have always loved AS3 AST and  
code generation I have some experience as well and I was actually  
looking at your visitor/sink pattern today for ideas!

I have gone through your whole code generation framework today, I  
would love to see if we could collaborate on something because you  
have put so much work into it and obviously love ActionScript as well.

How do you think this project and your project could create some type  
of symbiotic relationship without completely redoing each others  

Thanks for being so upfront, I think both project have the same goals.
