IMHO, this sounds like an elephant trying to pass itself off as a
butterfly.

Flash/Flex and HTML/JavaScript have completely different rationalle and
Use-Case; just as PHP/Drupal, Python/Django, and Scala/MongoDB have
theirs.

In my Yoga class last night, Yogi told us 'the essence of being is just
to be, regardless'. Perhaps he was on to something.
