Page-turn visual effect?

Just in case you haven't seen it, IMHO the British Museum's "Turning 
the Pages" project has the coolest page-turning animations I've ever 
seen. It's Shockwave, in fact. Does anyone think we could do that in 
Rev?

The only trouble with the site is that it thinks I'm on narrowband and 
I'm not. But it does look great.
