Like I told Frank, I will get the code up ASAP. FalconJS is just "to  
deep" for me Alex. I don't feel comfortable investing a huge amount of  
time hacking something I don't understand.

I for some reason this new design pattern doesn't work out, I will  
force myself to learn FalconJS's internals. I spent 8 hours on Friday  
trying to mangle code around and I found myself hacking a couple  
things like super because the implementation of the BURM and other  
renderings were so complex. Yes I was stepping through the code and  
saw exactly what it was doing. :)

On a side note, I would love to see your implementation of the  
MXMLClassDirectiveProcessor. I would like to see if I can make a  
traversal just like I have done here with as AST.
