Subject Re: Flex on top of Dart (was: To AS4 or not (was: Re: ASC 2.0 and Falcon))

Is it possible to build an AS/Flex framework just like ExtJS and Sencha
If we have this framework, we can write and test AS codes in flash builder
and public them as as/flex apps.
And most importantly, we can easily translate this AS code to JS code line
by line.
