Well any good design is not dependent on it's output. This design is  
no different, the only thing it's dependent on is it's AST structure.

You know, a week or two ago when this was brought up, I was going to  
suggest doing the same thing?

Why don't people do it in other frameworks? If it's a performance  
issue to use nested object prototypes than;

org_apache_flex_foo.MyClass.prototype should never get collisions. I  
don't know enough JavaScript theory to be useful though. :)

Isn't it the end of 2012 right now? ;-)
