As of today, there should be no difference between the Apache MXMLC and the
Adobe MXMLC, so in theory you can open the Apache Flex Framework projects in
FB and point to either compiler.  But someday, I expect you'll have to point
to the Apache MXMLC.

There is no 4.7 available at this time.  You should be able to have the
Apache SDK side by side with the Adobe SDK in FB 4.6, but there might be
some issues with the Apache SDK and some FB features.
