Hi, Justin.

To me that sounds like a kludge with little benefit and presumably worse performance than
either compiler by itself. I take it that you are unhappy with the decision to compile MXML
directly to ABC, for maximum performance, if it means losing -keep? If so, you could work
on a alternate compilation path for MXML in Falcon that involved either real or fake (i.e.,
not actually compiled) AS. What is the main problem that you use -keep to solve? Perhaps Falcon's
option that displays MXML syntax trees could be another solution for you.
