It sounds pretty plausible to me, although I'm not sure if it'll be
not to support SWC's at all. There's a myriad of as3 libraries out there
and quite probably a lot of folks that might only be interested in the SWF
target. (At least for the foreseeable future). So then it might still be
practice to enable people to add SWC's to their build, but it that case
only the SWF target will work.
Until someone comes along and builds a preprocessor that can translate
a SWC to a goshawk library :)
