Subject Re: Petition: Flash Catalyst must survive

The saddest thing to me is how much time and effort went into building an
entirely new (yet still incomplete) component model (Spark) that was built
all around the idea of Catalyst. That's not to say that the Spark
architecture doesn't have good ideas when you remove Catalyst from the
picture, but the amount of time that went into designing it to work with
the Fc tooling was all for naught. I have to believe many decisions would
have been made differently, and a lot of time would have been invested
differently had the Catalyst tooling support not been the priority.

Personally I'm happy to see Catalyst go, and would have been happier to see
it go long ago.
