Not to sound like a smart ass, but have you done something like this before with
Flash Remoting, reason I ask is that I have talked with a couple of "Flash"

that it couldnt be done with Flash or it would be prohibitive.  Most responses
I got back was SVG using Balik and DHTML/JavaScript for the front end dynamic
