Gordon,

Sorry for jumping late into this thread, but I am not sure what exactly
Falcon is at this point.  I was hoping that you would post some wiki pages
about what exactly Falcon is.  There is very little public information
about Falcon (that I could google)

>From what I understand (please correct me if I am wrong), Falcon is a new
version of the Actionscript compiler.
Does it support mxml as well?  Or would that be a separate top level
project?
What do we call the compiler that is currently inside trunk?
If falcon gets a new top level project, shouldnt the current compiler get
its own top level project?
Does Falcon work with exisiting flex sdk?  If I create new components
inside incubator/flex/SDK/trunk/, should I worry about who Falcon will work
with it?  How would I set up my project in that case?
Should I have copies of my new components in both incubator/flex/SDK/trunk/
and incubator/flex/Falcon/trunk/ to run both Mustella tests and Falcon's
tests?
(Thinking ahead) Does Falcon share any code with Falcon JS?  If yes, how
might we want to change the repo structure if/when FalconJS is contributed
to Apache Flex?

Sorry, if some of these questions sound stupid.  But we will be able to
make a better judgement of where it should go if we knew some more details.

Thanks,
Om
