Slow down. I think the idea is good though others immediately thought of
this as a Ruby dependency.

The idea of Gems is similar to the idea of SWCs. This would mean that there
would be a utility somewhere (maybe just an AIR app) that goes out and gets
the SWCs you want along with keeping them up to date. I think this would be
great for sharing libraries between projects.

With gems you can just point to the github repo for the gem and be done.
Something like this could be very powerful to help sharing.

It isn't a bad idea. Don't focus on the Ruby side of it; just put it into
Flexxy terms.
