You mean like the mxmlc and compc scripts?  They take a FLEX_HOME
environment variable and seem to be working.

I guess I haven't given up on the vision of Falcon being so independent that
it doesn't have to be in every SDK release.  For sure, I am currently
working on a "new SDK" and I want Falcon and FalconJS to work with it.  I
want to finish the vision of not having to change Falcon for every version
of the SDK.  That would eventually allow the SDK folder to not contain any
java code, and changing SDK versions becomes a matter of changing SWCs and
not JARs.

And I don't want to eliminate the possibility that someone will take on the
effort to integrate Falcon into an IDE.
