Yes, I got that, but my proposition is to use the goog library *from AS* to
create the wrapper code.
That's what we do with Ext JS successfully.

Even if you only have to implement a thin wrapper, my experience is that
this always becomes more code that you first expected. It would just be a
better means to code JavaScript that stays completely "under the hood".
Have a look at the "native JavaScript" thread, the idea would be to define
a [Native] wrapper for goog and use that to implement component rendering
and event transformation.

Just think "there is no -spoon- JavaScript", only ActionScript... ;-)
