Y'know, that's a *real* good question, and I'm sure it would be handy...
with Flash's ability to pull in distant data in URL-encoded,
comma-delimited name=value pairs, it would be great to parse some
XML-formatted document down to such an URL list.

There would be some ambiguities, sure... an XML-formatted document contains
much more structure than just a set of name/value tokens... you might
decide to just send attributes across, or to work with a particular type of
XML document that actually consisted of name=value pairs....

Do you have a particular data source in mind, Tom? Depending on its
structure, it may be easy to set up some Perl or other routine to
manipulate that string.
