Subject Re: Flex on top of Dart (was: To AS4 or not (was: Re: ASC 2.0 and Falcon))
Date Fri, 19 Oct 2012 13:53:25 GMT
"rewriting a Flex-like framework" easy to say but hard to do.
And its irrelevant in the Flex mailing list. We discuss what Flex should 
become, not what should be done to replace it.

You should ask, "has someone considered transcoding flex to Dart?"
