Using the current EnhancedQT external that Klaus mentioned you can 
process the FSCommand message sent from Flash movies.  So any FSCommand 
ActionScript in your SWF will send a message to Rev.  In the upcoming 
1.0 version of the EnhancedQT external you can also set Flash 
variables, get Flash variables click on Flash buttons and go to frames 
in the Flash movie.  I hope to have a beta of this up sometime next 
week but we will see how things go.
