[osflash] FP8 screen screenshot by code? - PNG port

I have started porting an open-source Java PNG encoder library. The goal
would be to ship an array of integers (bytes) to the server that
represent a PNG. Then the server just writes that array to disk.
I got hung up at porting a particular zlib compressio library - jzlib,
although Ralf's J2AS actually got me quite far. I was considering
starting an OSFlash project for it, but I could use a little help as
establishing naming conventions for "porting" an OS licensed project to
a different langauge. If anyone is interested let me know and maybe we
can get this hammered out. Would be quite useful to all, I think!
