I'm wondering to what extent customization of a SWF for a given client
needs to be handled at compile time. Runtime setting of the properties
of UI elements, such as their visibility, based upon the XML dataset
could handle a wide range of customization requirements.

I haven't used CForms yet, it sounds like the binding of these
components on the server-side would more frequently result in the
creation of unique LZX source.

I'm not suggesting that we don't need a Laszlo serializer, it sounds
like a good idea, interested in getting a better idea of cases in which
it would be useful to handle per-client variation through creation of
unique LZX.
