Subject Suggestion: Split Flex SDK into Flex-Core and Flex-More
Date Tue, 10 Jul 2012 08:54:19 GMT
In order to free up the Flex SDK to move forward, I'm thinking it would be advantageous to
split the SDK into "Flex-Core" and "Flex-More" like Merb (a Ruby library that merged with
Rails).

This would mean that the compiler, standard libraries and core components could move forward
in versions more freely, eg. without fringe components necessarily being updated. 
Also popular third party libraries could more easily be included into Flex-More. 

When it comes time for FalconJS, it could aim to support just the components in Flex-Core
to begin with, and projects too could just depend on it without Flex-More.

This would be easier to manage too if a package manager became a core component as previously
suggested, in fact it would make it easy to break the SDK into even more chunks.
