Interesting idea!

Subject: [FALCON] It starts with an idea


I just wanted to state this in a new thread so others might know my intentions as a committer
for the time being. Some of you might have noticed I am quite interested in the compiler and
plan on donating a lot of my time to it helping Gordon out with tests and trying to get the
community involved by documenting some of the more obscure features.

One thing I want to note;

At this point in time in my life I really don't care about Javascript.  
Really, I don't and it's never going to be a badge on my backpack of life.

That being said, I see my contribution in the project a process of joy and invention. Just
writing something to Gordon a second ago I realized what that is. The only way I can continue
is if I have a goal. That goal is realized by the fact I program Java android and do extensive
UI stuff with music applications I have coming up in the next 2 years using a Java C++ toolkit
I have been working on the last
10 months.

What does this mean? MXML -> Java Android UI like View and ViewGroup.  
Man I have no idea how the hell I could do it but I know I want to and am going to try.

Getting into the MXML compiler the last couple days reminded me of the diamond in the haystack
we have.

Anyway, more thoughts to come, this was a off the cuff ramble.
