Flash Catalyst, Flex & more...

Something that may help us to speed up development is Flash Catalyst. This application promises to enable someone to design a wesbite in flash, create a working version, and pass it off (with flex code included) to a developer -without coding. This video shows an example of this. Questions are - how good/sloppy is the code it generates? And would this be a better choice/faster than joomla/drupal development? And how soon will this product be released?
