They will never come in handy; one major problem with them, like with
the VM, was that they used an interface that's designed for AVM1 objects
when they should be creating AVM2 classes.

The code you used for generating them might be more useful, but first
it's necessary to work out and create an interface for making what we
need, and in any case it's advisable to start with a small number of
classes and test them extensively before expanding the interface for the
whole API.

It's also probably very sensible to create a large part of the AS3
interface (e.g. the constant enumeration classes) in ActionScript as
it's quicker to compile and more like what the pp does.


The current release of Gnash is 0.8.7
