Isn't the publishing process the closure compiler which google has  
tests for when it compiles out the minified optimized js?

I probably have more time into investigating the corss compile code In  
FalconJS and I have to say as it stands we don't even know if our  
compiler is creating bugs in the output js. It seems Adobe was unit  
testing the js but we don't have any of those tests.

So its reasonable to think we need to have tests for js that is  
compiled by FalconJS in the intermediate stage.
