sure but its clear its the "core" part of the app--the init is completely 
different, the "about" data, etc. are all from the main part of the app. there's 
no lib SWC involved in that bit. that's compiled straight from the source.

yup, 1:22pm a modern version is emitted then at 1:23pm it spits out the 
fossilized version.

ding ding ding. in .actionscriptProperties file a mystery branch has popped up 
(on me for not digging deeper in the branches).

<application path="alluvium.mxml"/>
<application path="branches/sammy/alluvium.mxml"/>

not sure why that particular code is in that branch but i suppose this is where 
the compiler is finding its fossils (it looks like the same age as what's being 

if i just delete the reference, will that stop the compiler from compiling it 
(need to figure out how/why that's in my source)?

ha ;-)

thanks for the advice.
