So I just pushed a first crack at suppressing most @export statements.
Set -export-public-symbols=false and many @export statements should go
away.  The before size of TLFEditTestFlexJS was 813493 bytes.  I
recompiled TLF without @export symbols and the after size was 679609
bytes.  And it ran.

Some things I found were that MXML isn't a problem because the id maps to
a getter/setter which maps to Object.DefineProperty which takes an object
structure where the ids are keys so they don't get renamed.  I noticed
that class names take up a lot of strings because they are used as a
literal in the FLEXJS_CLASS_INFO and thus never get minified/renamed.

Anyway, try compiling and running your application code with this option
set to false and see if it obfuscates things enough or not, and whether
the result still runs.
