I don't like this idea because you can't but include actionscript files in compile time, so all the time that I'm going to spend learning a certain API to generate actionscripts, I could write the actual script instead.

I do use perl to generate lots of redundant actionscripts because I'm lazy. But until I can include actions on runtime -- something like perl's eval -- I don't see quite a big added value in this process.

I think my main point is roughly like the point that people make about generating HTML with
