I'm not sure i agree on this, since i've heard rumors that the new VM is very
fast, and there is also the question of whether it will be possible/feasable to
support AS3 with gnash's current VM (which i know very little about). But since
"tamarin" probably wont be functional for a while, we'll have plenty of time to
discuss :)

Testcases is always nice :) I assume they available as raw actionscript code?
