That's an interesting proof-of-concept. Right now it's unusably slow, which I suppose is what you get for on-the-fly bytecode munging. I have doubts as to whether you'd ever be able to do the kind of high-speed real-time stuff that people write Flash/FLEX for, but possibly a cross-compiler would work. I'd trust Adobe to make such a cross-compiler pretty soon.

It'll probably get faster once it's in the wild for a while.  JQuery was pretty clunky at first as well, but now it's basically the gold standard of JS frameworks and being incorporated into professional dev environments.  

Adobe probably will create their own cross-compiler, but they may opt to go Microsoft's route with JQuery and  just donate resources to improve it as well.  Either way - Consumers win.
