Subject [FALCON] Parity with MXMLC
Date Tue, 03 Sep 2013 23:13:04 GMT
In my tour through Falcon to get BasicTests to run, I saw there were
several things that MXMLC could do that were un-implemented.  OTOH the
list was:

-Function data-binding
-XML data-binding

There may be more.  I got enough of function data-binding to work to get
BasicTests to run, but it won't work in the general case yet.  But I think
it should be somewhat straightforward to do.

I haven't looked into getting XML data-binding to work.  I do know that
XML data-binding is very Flash-specific.  Flash XML nodes support some
sort of change notification.  I don't see any way for us to support this
in FlexJS, so for FlexJS, I'm thinking we'll simply say you can't use XML
data-binding and maybe add a compiler option to warn where you use it.

Repeaters generate some pretty complicated code, IIRC.  I think Adobe
would have deprecated it if we could.

So the question is: Can we make Falcon releases without full
implementation of these features?  Can we get away with never supporting
