Usually, the shell isn’t “hidden", the module just fully covers the
visible portion of the shell.  The modules would use ExternalInterface
probably as they do now to communicate with the HTML wrapper.  The shell
SWF would expose a callback via ExternalInterface like
“loadThisModule(url:String)” that would replace all of the
swfobject.embedSWF calls.  IOW, instead of directing swfobject to load
things, you would call into the shell SWF.
