Subject Re: ABC -> JS

I got some interesting information from the original FalconJS developer.

He said he is not using Resig's Simple JS Inheritance scheme and is using
Google's base.js instead.  I guess I was led astray by one of the comments
in the source.  I took a look at base.js and don't see the extend() API so
I'm still trying to find out more.  So I will probably totally replace
adobe.js shortly.

Also, he said that base.js melts away to nothing with google closure
compiler in advanced mode.

Also, I'm still trying to understand some information he gave me about BURM
and AST.
