Making sure they look “good”, work mostly, and the SWF version lays out
pretty close to the JS version.  Actually, I think Peter and I can cover
these, plus we know the code better.  If you have spare cycles there are
other things to work on, like the rest of this list.

examples/externs would you know what was in it?  How about
examples/nativejs or examples/as_for_native_js or something like that?
And then the current examples could go one folder deeper such as
