  Actually Gnash's VM is pretty decent, and I do think we can extend it
for AS3, based on what little I know are the differences. Other reasons
we'll want to keep our own VM is things like utilizing Gnash plugins for
extra functionality. I also think that unlike Adobe, keeping Gnash lean
and mean for embedded targets is important.

  I just checked out the latest Mozilla code, and I'm building it now
with Tamarin included, so I can play with it. I think this code base
will be more useful to us as a guide, more than anything else.

  Yes, as .as files.

  Somebody told me the "Apollo" plugin that uses the new Adobe engine is
over 56M. A fully statically linked Gnash is still under 3M...
