Ok, they are implemented now.

So to create navigational buttons for a file called "slides.swf", you would
do something like this:

# buttons.sc
.flash name=buttons.swf

    .box left width=20 height=20 color=blue fill=magenta
    .box left2 width=20 height=20 color=blue fill=red
    .box left3 width=20 height=20 color=blue fill=white
    .box right width=20 height=20 color=blue fill=magenta
    .box right2 width=20 height=20 color=blue fill=red
    .box right3 width=20 height=20 color=blue fill=white

    .swf slides "slides.swf"
    .put slides


    .button leftbutton
        .show left as=idle
        .show left2 as=hover
        .show left3 as=pressed

    .button rightbutton
        .show right as=idle
        .show right2 as=hover
        .show right3 as=pressed

    .put leftbutton x=100 y=100
    .put rightbutton x=200 y=100


The "buttons" are simple boxes in this example, you will probably want
to replace them with something more appropriate like 
    .jpeg left filename="myleftbutton.jpg"
Beware, though, that if you use .swf for the definition, as in
    .swf left filename="myleftbutton.jpg"
the button will lose it's "hit" area, because the tag generated
by .swf is a DEFINESPRITE, which hasn't a bounding box, so in this
case you will need to specify the hit area explicitly:
    .show mybox as=area
