As far as I know 'pySWF' is possible makes __lots__ of sense.
I would love to stay in contact with anyone who is interested to do this.

I can provide some good links and ideas on this stuff.. just not handy to

is SVG. [Scalable Vector Graphics]
Nothing proprietary and entirely XML-based which Python is very well suited
