This should not be the motivation to go one way or another. Adobe's
position is already shared and know: They want only gamming. They throw
flex away. Tools, AVMs and languages are updated and designed only with
gamming in mind...

Alex, Carol and others are here payed by Adobe, but this project is made of
individuals (although some of them are payed by a company). It's clear that
Adobe could close the participation of their people, but this is a risk we
could take if the main direction choosen is what Apache Flex need.

We must think in what is the best for Apache Flex, and my position is that
a rewrite make us free of technology or tool to choose. And we should not
depend exclusively on Flash Platform and Adobe decisions. It's only a
matter of choose a open source platform that's working and could give us
support in the long term.

Some months ago my thoughts was very different, but right now that a full
rewrite is required, my opinion is clear about what to choose, and for
something new, I choose Haxe.
