The "dual" branch should have better support for conditional compilation
in the application source.

But I'd like to understand which problem you want to solve.  As you
mentioned, the snippet you provided did not have any code in it and should
be ok to use as innerHTML.  But as soon as you add an event handler, the
questions start to arise about the scope of the code.  Our compilers are
probably not ready to be JS compilers and if you want to access the code
from your AS code, I don't think we've defined how that should work.

There are other options where you promise that the AS code will not touch
the JS code.  That's closer to what externs/typedefs are.

You should be able to create library projects just like you did with
regular Flex and thus create SWCs with components that aren't "framework"
components.  I don't think we've had anybody actually try that, but I
would think we want that to work.
