And flex-sdk relies on flex-tlf and flex-blazeds, IIRC.

I’m only asking you to delete flex-sdk so we can start from a known place
to try to find out why your build fails but mine doesn't.  I’ve never had
to delete flex-sdk myself.  But I am asking you to test out a recent
script I committed since I think it might help other folks as well as you
get going with the source from the repos.  So I am more interested in
fixing issues where the ‘all’ target fails to do what I think it should.

That’s a possibility.  However, sometimes, a change to flex-asjs requires
a synchronized change to flex-falcon.  A bug or feature might just require
a change in both places since both code bases are under significant
development.  So relying on an already-built binary might help, but not
always.  I haven’t looked around to see if there is precedence in other
projects and how they handle it.  Google Closure Library and Google
Closure Compiler often need to be upgraded together as well.

Maybe the answer is that test failure shouldn’t fail the build but mark it
as ‘unstable’?  I think I see that happening in flex-blazeds.

What do others think?
