Subject Re: [FLEXJS} Musing about Mustella

Well, one of the mustella steps is called RunCode, because we don't have
steps for everything.  We will identify common patterns and turn them into
steps to reduce the total amount of AS, but I don't think we can get
everything.  There is also a step called AssertMethodValue that calls a
method and checks its value.

RunCode might do something like:

<RunCode code="var foo=new Widget(); addChild(foo); foo.currentDate = new
Date()" />


<RunCode code="doSomething()" />

Where doSomething() is defined in the fx:Script block.

There's a good chance that just about all of the AS is essentially just
JS.  We can say not to define new classes or use "for each" and other non
JS stuff, and even fully qualify classes if that makes things easier.
