Subject Re: [FalconJx] Package down to Expression production; JSGoogEmiter prototype

Alex, I am totally with Erik that on the language level, we can reach this
ambitious goal.
When building Jangaroo, a lot of effort went into the compiler, and it
still is not fully syntactically compatible with AS3 and doesn't do any
type checking.
Having Falcon and brilliant developers who know it so well to implement the
cross-compiler, we can now concentrate on the few remaining challenging
aspects.
I agree that E4X is probably out of reach, and so is flash_proxy stuff, so
e.g. some Flex collection stuff won't be fully supported.
Also, I am still not totally sure about IE < 9. To work around the missing
getter/setter support would be hard and quite an effort, but after all
possible, and it seems we need to support the old IE family to be
"enterprise-compatible"...
