My inclination would have been "asf" rather than "a" but I am sure many
others have opinions.

FlexBuilder uses fat swcs which include the Asdocs for that component.  I
just realized yesterday that this is something I/we will have to deal with
once we get all the code donated.  Here at Adobe, the fat swcs were
generated on the production build machine which has slightly different
build scripts than the ones that will be in svn.  I think there was some
post-build processing done which included making fat swcs.  I will need to
check and see if there was anything else done.
