Beware that you are not going to be able to produce a standalone binary
package because we can not distribute binaries/swcs for any code that we
don't have the sources for or have the right to distribute and I'm not
even sure about this last part.  Off the top of my head this includes the
playerglobal.swc, the AIR Stuff, textLayout.swc and osmf.swc.
