So, how does Falcon's 'asc' shell script do its job? Did you make it use an environment variable
to find an SDK?

You mean like the mxmlc and compc scripts?  They take a FLEX_HOME environment variable and
seem to be working.

I guess I haven't given up on the vision of Falcon being so independent that it doesn't have
to be in every SDK release.  For sure, I am currently working on a "new SDK" and I want Falcon
and FalconJS to work with it.  I want to finish the vision of not having to change Falcon
for every version of the SDK.  That would eventually allow the SDK folder to not contain any
java code, and changing SDK versions becomes a matter of changing SWCs and not JARs.

And I don't want to eliminate the possibility that someone will take on the effort to integrate
Falcon into an IDE.
