1. If you have external libraries you use I'd put them into a 'lib' folder.
This makes organization easier. I do also have a 'test' folder for unit
2. All classes (*.as files) are compiled into the swf.
3. Embeding images is not the same as loading images. Embeding images means
that it was (at this time) not possible to include images etc. into the
library. This is now (thanks to swfmill) possible.
Loading images etc. does of course work.
4. Don't know what you mean. You use swfmill to create a swf (maybe with
library symbols etc) and then mtasc to inject the actionscript code. It does
not matter then where or how you load movies.
