The Falcon codebase certainly looks like it is organized better. However,
I'm basically done with the hard part of modifying the older compiler, so
if I were to switch to Falcon, I'd be doing everything all over again (and
I'd be doing it without funding this time).

One thing that made things easier (for me) in the older compiler was being
able to edit the *.vm files used for code generation. I'd rather work with
something that resembles ActionScript than have to manually write/edit code
like this (from Falcon):

MethodInfo mi = new MethodInfo();
mi.setMethodName(propName.getBaseName());

mi.setReturnType(propType);

InstructionList insns = new InstructionList(3);
insns.addInstruction(OP_getlocal0);
insns.addInstruction(OP_getproperty, backingName);
insns.addInstruction(OP_returnvalue);

I'm sure I could figure it out, if I had to, but thankfully, I didn't.
