Subject Re: [FlexJS} RBLs and SWCs

You're correct Alex, rbls were a full SDK OR user library. You could say we
developed that global container to make plug and play with IntelliJ
instant. Two years, my brain is a bit hazy.

My design decision was, the SWC compiler did a job, we had other compilers
that did other jobs. For myself it didn't make sense messing with the SWC

Maybe it was a bad decision who knows, it's history now.
