If someone came up with a Flash project translator I would welcome it into
the RevSelect program.

Flash the product isnt always that great a designer experience for all
purposes of Flash the format. There are lots of translator products out
there (Powerpoint to Flash, for example) and a lot of others like Anime
Studio that take the animator paradigm and create a nice workspace that
particularly serves the needs of animators.

The market for products that export in Flash format is much bigger than the
market for Flash itself.
