Write a small perl script (or similar) to convert the source timeline data
into ActionScript variable declarations within a .action block in a separate

Use .include from the main .sc to incorporate those declarations into the

Both the script and the main .sc remain unencumbered, the "end user"
will need to provide their own source data to complete compilation.
