  Well, all we've been doing is moving things to the directories where
they exist in the AS3. Why "easier to find" ? We can leave some classes
in libcore or libasobjs, but I thought they'd be easier to find if the
class definitions lived in the same subdirectory tree as the test cases
and the spec. If you have classes you'd like to see not migrated, let us

  That was the idea, to use the new AS3 names, but to have them work

each class was in, and differences between AS2 and AS3.
