Yup, if the tests are going to be non-visual SWFs then you don't need all of
Mustella.  The "checkintests" target in the SDK's build.xml also compiles
and runs a SWF.  Yes, it uses Mustella, but really, it doesn't have to.  If
you are using ANT to drive the unit tests, you can probably copy the way we
launch the SWF and read the trace log.

I'm not certain, but I'm pretty sure Gordon weighs more than me.
