Wow, so much arrogance and ignorance in one single post.

it was overkill and added little to no value to the quality of the code.  All the ppl I know
who used Parsley said "oh but you have dependency injection"  "oh but you have encapsulation
of this" "oh but you have decoupled code"...  I say "ever hear of a singleton? flex doesn't
need dependency injection if you are smart"  "why encapsulate?  don't your developers know
how to use the Flex SDK?, what are you afraid of writing your own code"  and to the ppl who
blather on about decoupled code... I laugh in their faces and ask them "ever hear of Events?"

draconian and intentionally dismissive...  But I believe that Flex is a great framework all
by itself, and if you need an extra package to do MVC, you don't understand what MVC is in
the first place, and no matter what you do, it won't be good.
