The conversation was about exploring a straight AST to JS convertor  
and bypassing the JS emitting using SWF reducer.

My point was in the discussion that I don't know SWF format and JBurg  
so trying to maintain FalconJS in it's current state would be hard for  
a lot of developers.

A lot of cross compilers just work with the straight AST in our case  
the IASNode or IDefinition frameworks.

I also thought having this ability would allow other targets to be  
implemented more quickly IE Java android or something...

What do you think?
