Hm, I think that hurdle alone would be reason enough not to consider HaXe,
in its current
incarnation of course, as an alternative.
I really do agree that with Falcon in our hands we'll be much more
flexible, the runtime dependencies
will then be something that the community itself can tackle.
I totally respect HaXe for what it is, and I think the guys making it are
pretty brilliant, but its
still no reason to drop actionscript IMHO.
Maybe we'll even be lucky and these guys will contribute some of their time
on Falcon, I hope
it tickles their interest :)
