The purpose of a compiler written in AS3 is that we can compile code on 
the fly instead of whenever necessary. This ability is important if we 
ever want tools like Firebug for JavaScript or the Python console, both 
of which are now dearly missing. Also Dart - a competing language - 
offers this feature directly on the homepage which does put so awe on 
the faces.
