Ok, that answered my question.

Well, when I said "teach" I just meant getting into the code. Really, I
know the base part of the compiler and the walker/visitor framework well
;-), so getting FalconJX to use an HTML.swc would be exactly what I am
looking for to do.

This is where you can keep doing what you are good at and I can work on
what I am good at(code rendering).

Can I ask you to start another thread and outline what you see needs to be
done to accomplish what is in your mind dealing with FalconJX and the
HTML.swc? If you can just brainstorm, then I can ask you questions to fill
in the gaps that I am not seeing.

This would be beneficial for me as well and probably others. I could see
myself learning from something you are actively working on and looking at
your commits.

Right now I have a September target for about 4-5 Feathers mobile Android
apps I am working on to release based on Caustic audio engine, that is my
income. :) So the Crodova experiment I see coming in the Fall/Winter when I
am more sound in what's going on and the component framework is a bit more

Yeah, well if my apps take off, which they should since I am working with
the dev of Caustic, I will have a 100% excuse to keep working on this
project for the foreseeable future. As you can see, with apps selling using
native extensions and AIR, my motivation to get them to work in
HTML/Cordova increases 10 fold because they are already successful on one
platform. This is a good thing.
