Well, while it would be nice to use lightspark as a library, given that
this won't happen, the question to ask is: how much effort would it be
to *fork* the lightspark code, to use as a base for AVM2 support in

Tamarin is probably more mature (AIUI it's actual code from Adobe's
proprietary player); but the fact that lightspark already implements the
most important AS3 classes, might actually outweigh this. (If they can
be integrated into Gnash in a sane manner...)

Or perhaps it might even be possible to do both: take Tamarin as the
AVM2 engine, and the AS3 classes from lightspark?
