I wrote the old backend. I have not (and will not) have the time to  
update to the newer SWF format. Unless things have changed, the format  
is well documented -- so you don't have to reverse engineer it if you  
want to make your own attempt.

That said, if you are trying to generate actionscript bytecode, a  
better approach may be to use LLVM. That is what adobe does for Alchemy:


if the LLVM -> actionscript code is public, then you can use the  
existing haskell->llvm bindings and get a bunch of optimizing for
