I'm soooooooooooooooooooo with you on this one. This would be a killer 
app for any oo language (including Actionscript, which takes up the 
better part of my days) with the option for strong typing. I agree that 
the plugin architecture would be needed for this.

See above.

As would I.

Allan, do you have any ideas/suggestions/resources/examples/whatever 
for us to start thinking about this?

I look forward to sending screenshots of this to all of my smug, 
Eclipse-using colleagues ("you develop for Flash on a MAC??!!?!?!)
