Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Swiz Framework Donation to Apache Flex
Date Fri, 31 May 2013 16:52:02 GMT
Alex, even if AOP would be added at compiling time, it would be up to the
frameworks to leverage it, swiz or other.

Regarding -1 votes, I think 2 of them will be solved if swiz is under the
utilities and not making it as part of the Flex SDK.
The last -1, no reason has been given so Igor will have to elaborate why
he's against.
