It is not necessary to have duplicates to be able to swap depths....in fact
its not necessary to even have movies that are loaded to be able to swap
depths. I say this because the text speaks of how only loaded movies have
levels beyond 0...All movie clips within the primary movie are all
considered on level 0, but I have a program right now that switches depths
between clips that are all on the main movie, level0. I don't know what
level they are considered, I just used...

_root.yourbottomclip.swapDepths(_root.yourtopclip);

The bottom jumps on top of the other regardless of all being on level 0.
