Falcon’s architects decided to eliminate generated AS in favor of being
able to do optimizations that don’t represent themselves in AS.  I’m not

Hmm.  Looks like you are right. I don’t see any checks for the debug flag.

There is code in the example looking for a class of type DataBindingTest
in order to talk back to the app.  Should only be in one or two places.
