Well, it was Christmas time, so I didn't want to bother you :)

True, at least ONE app has been made using your library, that definitely
makes up for a year's worth of hard labour, doesn't it? :)

A writeable AST would be absolutely a must if we would ever want to
implement any kind of compile-time AOP functionality. So if that could be
done eventually, I think this would GREATLY improve the possibilities of
the compiler. (Not just from an AOP perspective, all sorts of compile-time
code generation could be added, I'm pretty sure Michael Labriola has a few
ideas for this :))
If somehow the compiler can be used through a ANE (AIR Native Extension)
than little apps like the one I made here with ASBlocks could become even
easier to build, plus the parsing times would become unnoticable.
I'll be happy to help out in these cases, so once you get around to it
let's brainstorm :)

 I might have some more pull requests in the future for ASBlocks (I think
I'll add a addStatementAt(index:int, statement:IAStatement) method to the
IASMethod implementations for instance). I'll send you an email when I do,
if github refuses to notify you, I'll just do it manually :)
