I wasn't planning on ditching you at all. :)

The fact is, what I am going to make with AST is a  
walker/visitor/writer setup using the IASNode framework and is  
completely independent of the FlaconJS implementation as it stands (no  
branching needed or code muddling).

The above "project" is baby steps and will be strictly prototype for  
I'm sure a good amount of time.

I already said in previous emails that getting the FalconJS compiler  
working and producing js that will suit ActionScript component  
development is first priority. I just happens that I love  
multitasking, at the smae time I am programing an opensource audio  
framework for Android apps. I'm quite comfortable with my current  
situation... knock on wood. :)

Regardless of what Jangaroo can do for us, its golden to have a mind  
like Frank's in the conversation.
