Subject RE: Actionscript 4 compatibility

+1 for multiple inheritance.
+1 for java/C++ bridge.  I would love to be able to import a jar or an .so or a .lib into
a project and instantiate the classes inside it... (ie: pdf generators, xml parsers, all kinds
of useful stuff that already exists and could make AS apps truly shine!)
