Oh no, changing the generated JS would be futile, but having clear access to
through, for example, source maps would be really important for being able
to
pinpoint what is going wrong. I'm sure that once Apache Flex starts
churning out
projects that are being cross-compiled we're going to run into edge cases
where the
generated JS doesn't work, or doesn't work as expected. And especially in
the latter
case you'd probably want to be able to play around with the JS to see what
the problem
is exactly.
Am I making sense?
