Several issues here, I think we should all stick to the same unit testing
frameworks for consistency so we can easily merge each others works.

But ASUnit in particular I think is something we should not be considering.
Take a look at their page: Not a single resource at the
bottom that are supposed to be their resources for getting started work
anymore. And if I remember correctly, this project has been abandoned for
at least a year or two because the author is like either a JS or Ruby guy.
This is bad if we suggest people should, or could, use ASUnit.

At the least, we should say don't use ASUnit because of X reason, and I
think those reasons right now are a.) its abandoned, b.) docs suck, c.)
FlexUnit has built in support in both IntelliJ and Flash Builder.
