Probably more than a weekend project, but if you do it, I'd be very,
very happy! I'm just working on a rather complex Flashproject (simulator
for a digital camera) and I have more than enough reasons to curse Flash
& ActionScript. The thought how wonderful it would be, if I could use
Python for the logic just popped up in my head a few days ago...
