Thanks.  I think that better illustrates that there are fewer steps to
getting started, which I hope will be attractive to 3rd party framework

If you have time, it might be better to write up the FlexJS steps from a
command-line perspective.  I don't think folks will get an IDE to first
get started.  I'm not quite sure how to illustrate it in words, but I
think it might be something like:

1. Create a new file called Demo.mxml.
2. Paste the following CreateJS Application template (and I would include
the View tag in the template).
3. Insert Circle tag inside the View tag
4. Compile and open bin/js-debug/index.html in a browser.

We could even collapse 1 & 2 by posting the template on our site for
