[jdev] XMPP client/server issues with Flash-based client

Hey All,

Peter Fisk (Cc'd) has developed direct support for XMPP into Vista
Smalltalk, a .NET and now Flash-based implementation of Smalltalk and Lisp.
It seems he's run into some problems, however, with getting XMPP to work in
the Flash-based version (see:
http://vistascript.net/vistascript/flex/vst.swf for a working demo and visit
http://vistasmalltalk.wordpress.com/ for a running list of entries that
provide various demo's to help get you started)

In follow-up to a question I posed to Peter in a recent blog entry,

I personally don't have enough experience with Flash to be able to know the
answer (or at least the possible answer) to the problem.  Am digging around
a bit to see what I might be able to come up with (I doubt much I need to
express to this list how cool it would be to have this capability built into
a Smalltalk/Lisp interpreter for Flash! ;-)), but it seemed worth posting
this to the dev-list to see if anyone else out there might be able to lead
and guide me, and ultimately, Peter, to the solution.

Thanks in advance for any and all help/advice!
