AS3 might become usable in multi-SWF projects

Thx to the vigilance of Grant Skinner, and to the tedious tests/debugging of probably many other developpers, the problem of "unloading SWF cleanly" is on the track of some sort of improvement.

An very interesting "good practice" to cope with memory management is the Janitor class, by G.Skinner again .
It can be found here: Resource management for ActionScript 3 (AS3) and Flex 2 (the Janitor class is in the ZIP file).
