Hey, interesting idea!

I recently investigated a bit the SWF Transformer/Serializer we have in 
Cocoon to produce dynamically generated Flash, but unfortunately what is 
provided by Spark isn't really usable as it's mostly composed of 
<rawdata> tags.

Anyone having a better experience or some ideas on this?

Why wait? Ideas are always interesting to share, even more if others can 
pick them up and implement them.
