Sorry, that isn't my 0th priority. If you can't even run mxmlc, it doesn't matter whether
mxmlc compiles MXML properly. And if people can't understand how to build Falcon, then no
one will be able to help me complete MXML. Finally, the ActionScript side of the compiler
is equally important given that most people's MXML files have large amounts of ActionScript.
