Subject Re: [FalconJS] concepts

Can you explain a little bit (maybe in pseudo-code or whatever) about
how the AS3 -> Falcon -> FalsonJS -> JS 'compilation' process works?
What I'm looking for is an idea of how the JS output is put together,
if you will. Example: how easy (or difficult) is it to exchange one JS
"class" creation method for another? Right now it's "Class =
adobe.extend(arg, arg, { theClassBody })". Is it a lot of effort to
change that output to something like "function Class()  { theClassBody

I did look at some of the Java classes that seemed relevant, but soon
realised that without first having some idea of the concepts involved,
"use the Force, read the source" wasn't going to be a useful way to
spend my time ;-)
