Will IDEA 8.0 support creating an ActionScript project?

When you create a new project in Flex Builder, you can choose "New Flex Project" or "New ActionScript Project". I've seen examples on how to use IDEA 8.0 EAP for the first scenario, but will the latter one also be supported? I'd like to use IDEA for implementing pure ActionScript 3 projects without Flex.

What type of support you'd expect for ActionScript project (most of
ActionScript editing features you should get right now by using Flex
module)?

Basically, I'd like to have a project where I don't need to define any MXML or that doesn't need to include the Flex component libraries. I simply choose the main class (extending a Sprite) that I have implemented in AS, and that class will be added on the stage as a the root object. Please try the following in FlexBuilder (you hopefully have at least one license for it and if you don't, there is a 60 day evaluation license available):

1) Go to File / New / ActionScript Project
2) Enter "Test" as project name and click "Finish"
3) The project with "Test.as" will be created. Implement some code, e.g:
public function Test() {
var textField : TextField = new TextField();
textField.text = "Hello World!";
addChild(textField);
}
4) Go to Run / Run Test

You should see "Hello World!" on the screen. No MXML or Flex components involved.

today manually), please, file JIRA request

Are you planning to support "Library Project" type (creates .swc file) and ability to link library project to Flex/ActionScript projects?

Thanks,
Roman
