IMO, we’ve finished removing any Flex SDK dependencies from
Falcon/FalconJX and Feathers should just be another component set.  I’m
interested in discussing with Josh as to whether he’ll get to his finish
line faster by joining up with FlexJS.  Sure, Peter and I and others are
working on a UI component set, but we want FlexJS tool chain to be
component set agnostic.  We’re just taking AS classes, gluing them
together with more AS and cross compiling some AS and swapping in JS
definitions for other classes.

It isn’t clear Josh needs another emitter as much as different set of AS
and JS classes the current emitters can handle.
