Actually, it has already and quite some time ago:

The recipe is simple: use Python for the business logic, database
interfacing, etc and have it talk to a Flex front-end via XML-RPC
or REST.

As a nice side-effect, this also results in a better separation
between GUI and backend, effectively making the solution future-proof
and easy to adapt to other front-end technologies.

We've been working with this approach for almost a year now and
so far never had to look back.
