Yep, there are tricks for the various IDEs.  Shouldn't be necessary for a
Maven build.

I don't see any mention of swfutils.jar in the ant build.xml for debugger
and flex-compiler-oem.  Instead, we copy in the subset of the source of
swfutils from the flex-sdk.

The word "closure" or "goog" isn't in the build.xml for the debugger.
What are you seeing?  The debugger does call the Flex/FlexJS compiler in
order to handle the print command.

Old Ant builds created a frameworks/externs folder.  I don't have one in
my repo.

For IntelliJ, there might be a few manifest.xml files IJ expects as well.
