Or better yet share the code ;-) Perhaps if the code was made the code public someone here
on the list might have an insight to getting around what problems exist or at the very least
we could see where the issues are and how hard they might be to solve. I certainly don't doubt
that it's a difficult problem to solve but we have lots of smart people on the list who are
willing to have a go go at it.

Could it  be easier to break up UI component if  not we're not 100% backwards compatibility
with Flex 4? If there was a clear migration path (or better yet a conversion tool) that might
be a path to consider.
