I've embedded a swf file in an Eclipse plugin and enabled back and forth
communication using just 'fscommand'.  It was a while ago and  was quite

I have no doubts about being able to do this using today's Flash Player
runtime.  ExternalInterface should work fine.

I will whip up a proof of concept when I find some time.
