Hi Alex,

Well, as per [1], I thought we would have keep the same feature for Falcon.

And In IntelliJ, as per their doc, you can select which of the available Flex compilers should
be used:

1- Built-in compiler shell. An 
                    IntelliJ IDEA compiler shell which uses the Flex SDK 
                    compiler API.


This compiler shell can perform incremental 
                      compilations. As a multithreaded shell, it is capable of 
                      running a number of compilations simultaneously, in 

2- Mxmlc/compc: Compiler 
                    available in Flex SDK

This compiler cannot compile incrementally. However, it 
                      can run several independent compilation processes 
                      simultaneously which significantly improves the 
                      compilation performance.

Whichever of the compiler options you use, IntelliJ IDEA 
                  keeps track of the modules where nothing has changed since 
                  the previous compilation. Consequently, the SWF and SWC 
                  files that are up-to-date are not compiled.

Selecting the 2nd option and trying to build a project, I can see all the failed calls to
the flex-compiler-oem and it uses CompilerAPI, Mxmlc and I guess Compc for libs.

Will try to do my best with the low knowlegde I've got on the Compiler.
