If you look that license is no longer at the top.  I moved the copyright
to LICENSE and put the Apache header on the top of the file.  I added an
entry to the NOTICE file.  This code has a BSD license which is compatible
with Apache so we can include the code without an issues as long as we
handle the copyrights and notice correctly.

As far as the as3commons source code goes we can do the same thing and
include the code in our common directory and build the swc ourselves.
Alternatively we can download the swc as part of the build process as we
do currently for some of the other swcs.

I can work on this later today or tomorrow.
