Flash Remoting in Python?

Flash Remoting is a way for Flash applications to make "native" method
calls in Action Script to a server side program, using the AMF binary
format.

Flash has commercial versions of a Flash Remoting servers.  There are
open-source alternatives for php, java, and perl.  But alas, no
Python.

Does anyone have any interest in a project like this?  It would be
port for the most part; the AMF format is already well known.  In
addition, there is a lot of similarities between ActionScript objects
and native Python objects; porting between the two data types would
not be difficult.

Here are some links for info.
