No problem, I know what it's like to run out of spare time.
It's great to have you back!

Hm, yes- actually SWF has native support for Quicktime.
I now added a .quicktime command to swfc:

.quicktime mymovie http://some.url/to/some/quicktime.qt

This should give you a "mymovie" quicktime object which you can scale,
rotate, colortransform etc.
I haven't yet tested it myself though, as I don't seem to have any
quicktime files around.

Btw., newer versions of the flash specification don't appear to
mention the quicktime tag anymore. Maybe because it has been
superseded by the h.263 codec (which may be the other option- convert
 the quicktime to avi using something like mencoder, then convert
 it to .swf with avi2swf, and then use .swf to include that file.
 .quicktime is probably the quicker way, though. ;))

A Mac OS/X Darwin? Sweet. I'll probably get you to run a few tests of
the Python module on that machine soon. :)
