    Pointless warning message

    arc_twelve
      When creating a new actionscript class, you get the warning:

      " The use of the default package is discouraged."

      Please I beg of you, remove this. There is a terrible trend of people misusing packages, thinking they are folders, and generally going crazy tidying things up into hundreds of directories. A package has motivations that concern scope and visibility, along with organization. Please don't tempt people into using *more* packages than necessary.

      For example, to avoid the warning, you might create a package called "classes" -- but nobody in the universe is going reuse the "classes" package outside of that project.

      It's really bad if you really consider it and understand packages -- I hope you will remove this pointless warning.
