Hey Joey...

I am doing flex work as well, it's a surprise that it's on that page. I 
would not expect it a plain flex builder thing, but rather cairngorm based 
or something. But I see a problem here:

- Flex using webservices is a very save way, and working anywhere with just 
a php base. That works out of the box. Lot's of things need to be considered 
within the flex application to manage different views for different users, 
so I would not expect it less complicate than a good php/html based 
framework. But: Not interesting, as the real strength in my eyes is missing, 
see below.

- Flex data services including it's data management features and messaging 
services. This is live communication between frontend and backend. This is a 
very cool feature. Problem 1: It's free if it's running with max 1 CPU and 
max 1 Application on the server. The commercial license is not affordable 
for 99.9% of the clients. 2: It's java based, much more difficult to 
install. But it has some features like server side rendering of that 
application and such. It would always be double work to include 
edit-features via FDS while typo3 is php based.
(But... If editor1 changes headline, editor2 would see it straight away 
etc... cool!)

- It would be too much work to develop a webservice based version beside an 
FDS based version.

So, what do we learn from it? Use Java für 5.0 ;)

Beside that: This is my main concern when asking for generic webservice 
support in 5.0 :-) I'd partly go for FDS/Flex in a parallel track!
