By the way, currently the closest thing to documentation for swfmill
is the source code. This isn’t as bad as it sounds -- if you check out
the source from Launchpad and search the following files it’s usually
possible to work out what to do:
Full dialect: src/codegen/source.xml
Simple dialect: src/xslt/*.xsl (defined as a set of XSL
transformations from the simple dialect to the full dialect)
This isn’t a great situation, but hopefully this is of some help in
the meantime until better documentation is available.
