Hi Alex,

I was looking into the Falcon description page here:
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/FLEX/Falcon+Overview which
confirms your opinion/suggestion on Falcon's code to use for code-completion
to an IDE:

As a complete beginner to understand Falcon, can you give us or point us to
some more details on this? We would like to know what is Falcon's AST codes,
where we can found this? If anyway we able to port the codes to an ANE, can
you give suggestion how it should act to an IDE's code, how an IDE should
communicate to it to extract necessary code completion hints. 

Thank you.
