And, Oleg, while I agree that SWF metadata and HTML metadata and the current
SWF sniffer haven't been useful, I don't see any reason why folks can't make
another attempt at it.  Richer JS apps that don't keep fetching new HTML
pages have similar problems and I believe energy is being spent to solve it
there as well.

There was some discussion in Adobe about defining patterns to make it easier
to tie states to deep-linking.  A SWF sniffer could detect the existence of
that pattern to make them appear as links to a search engine.

Or, even something more brute force is possible where the compiler or some
tool has a mode where it will generate a site-map for you based on clues you
leave in your MXML.
