IMO, something like an "R" class should not be put into the compiler or the
IDE.  The compiler should be as framework agnostic as possible.  It is
probably possible to create a set of classes that do what R does.

How many of you use non-String resources?  A String-only resource system can
be so much better optimized than what we have now.  I would love to phase
out the current ResourceManager subsystem and replace it with something much
smaller and faster.
