Besides working on the compiler, I would love it if you created some sort
of mobile/desktop plugin workflow for FlexJS.  Just like FlexJS currently
generates a SWF for testing and potential deployment then cross-compiles
to HTML/JS/CSS, mobile applications for FlexJS should be able to use AIR
to run the SWF for testing and cross-compile and generate apps via the
Cordova/PhoneGap process.  We have already proven that the Cordova process
works for FlexJS for mobile apps that don’t have native extensions.  There
is a cordova-build.xml file in the flex-asjs root that will crank the
FalconJX output into a Cordova app.  I’ve used it on DataBindingTest, I
think Peter has also used it on GoogleMaps.

FWIW, another thing I’ve been thinking about is a different sort of ASDoc
tool.  Now that the classes in FlexJS are made up of small composited
pieces, the public API seems like it needs sub-division: public APIs that
application developers are likely to use, and public APIs that the
developers of the small pieces are likely to use.  In my mind it would be
an AIR app and we’d add more asdoc annotations to APIs to help
differentiate them, but I could be totally wrong about that.

Food for thought,
