[osflash] Programmatic Control of Flash Player

I'm looking to do something a bit odd with a flash player (either Adobe's or
one of the open source alternatives). I'd like to be able to programatically
launch a swf and have it run automatically. While it's communicating with a
server, I'd like to be able to capture the data being sent to and from the
player. And here are the 2 most important parts. First, neither the server
or swf file will have been generated by me, so I can't modify the code in
either - that is, I will be running the swf and looking just to capture the
data being passed back and forth between it and a server. Second, this needs
to run as a background process without human interaction. Bonus points for
anyone that can suggest a command line tool for actually interacting with a
flash movie programatically.
I have spent the better part of the day examining various tools out there to
do this, but I can't seem to find anything that I can use as a platform for
developing my own tool to accomplish the above.
Does anyone have any thoughts on the matter?
