Morphing between shapes is in the pipeline- when it's implemented
the syntax will be something like

.outline shape1:
    #define shape 1
.outline shape2:
    #define shape 2
.morphshape morphthing start=shape1 end=shape2 fill=green line=red linewidth=3
.frame 250
    .put morphthing ratio=0%
.frame 270
    .change morphthing ratio=100%

(with .outline also being able to be a .textshape, of course)

I'm not planning to implement morphing between frames, because I wouldn't
know how to. :) (As frames can be arbitrarily complex, with clippings,
bitmaps, etc., you'd need a horrifyingly complex algorithm in order to 
get a "smooth" transition- e.g., how would you morph a frame containing
two bitmaps into a frame containing a line of text?)

Looks nice. I'm honored that you (want to) use SWFTools for this. :)
