Hmm.. there is a libswf somewhere out there (sadly it does not seem
to be open sourced though) which is also being used by the swf exten-
sions of PHP. This lib (maintained by Paul Haeberli at SGI) focusses
on creating swf, but it might be a starting point.

There should also be the source of a Netscape plugin (see FreshMeat)
created by Olivier Debon. This guy also wrote some other software
which handles flash format. Perhaps this could be used as a basis
for an external parser.
