Interesting. I'll have a look at this. Usually, swfc should be able
to compile all actionscript prior to Flash 9.

Though it might be that if these are more difficult to fix, I'll
leave that alone. Right now, I'm rather toying with the idea of
finally writing a complete (i.e., compile from source instead of
compile-from assembler, like with the upcoming pdf2swf link AVM2
link feature) Flash 9 (AVM2) AS compiler. That might
be more useful in the long run.

It doesn't work yet. It's just in there to show good will.

Maybe- you mean Javascript, U3D and stuff?
I'm not entirely sure about the whole Poppler<->xpdf forking thing.
poppler seems to be very active, and I haven't heard from Derek
(the xpdf author) for quite some time. On the other hand, the
poppler guys still refer to xpdf as "upstream" and incorporate fixes.
Last time I looked, they were also seriously lacking support for
advanced things like transparency groups. Anyway, I don't want to
switch to poppler just so that suddenly a new xpdf is released 
which can do more things than the poppler version I just switched to.
