Our docs have a section called �Understanding Flex Builder� projects
which has a good description of how to use and think about projects in
FlexBuilder. You can either search for it or you can find it in the Help
Table of Contents under Adobe Flex 2.0 Help > Using Adobe Flex Builder
2.0 and there is a link called �Working with Projects� that is a good
place to get started.

That's what I was looking for, thanks.
Well I got close. I found:
"If you'd rather set multiple files as application files, so that each application file is built into a separate SWF file, see "Defining multiple applications in a single project" on page 63."
This is what I want to do, but of course I cannot find that topic or page anywhere.
Oops, the document is out of date. I reported this to our publications people, it will be fixed in
the final release.
The topic "Defining multiple applications in a single project" was removed because Flex Builder now
automatically makes all project MXML files runnable. In other words, if you have several MXML files
in the source folder of the project (which is usually the same as the root folder), then FlexBuilder
will automatically create SWFs for all of them when you build. You can look at the topics "Managing
project application files" and "Setting project application file properties" for more information.
Let me know if this solves your issue.

Yes, that is clear, and simpler than it sounded.
