I always had a theory I wanted to try out but never had a chance to. Just curious to get your
initial reaction on it as it pertains to this conversation. SWF is a streaming format. Generally,
Flex takes advantages of 2 frames, but the system manager does already hint at looking at
frames beyond 2.

I always thought it would be interesting to stream the first two frames from a server. Then
keep alive the connection, use some connection to a server to indicate which classes were
needed next and just stream additional frames each time we need a group of definitions. Not
saying we need to adapt everything to do that, just always wanted to try.

Initial gut check on the theory?
