Don't think anyone is suggesting that you recompile a SWF for each

We could in theory have a couple 100 different SWF's many of which are
slight variations on each other.  We'd generate the Laszlo source for
them from Cocoon, customized for each user as needed and then send the
resultant compiled SWF over to the client.  Those SWF would then hang
around on the client bouncing XML back and forth with Cocoon.
