I think parsing and playing should be performed by the 
same class. Each thread should run a single Sprite/MovieClip
where the main movie itself *is* (should be, IMO) a Sprite.

A Sprite would read from an abstract Stream and refresh
the display whenever it encounters a ShowFrame tag.
A Sprite would be initialized with a Stream, a Frontend
and a Backend (see gui/DESIGN).

The Stream could be an adapter to use the browser api or
a custom one supporting our own caching or whatever.

Does it sound ?
