Support for SWF via winelib is no more. Mono will be using it's own
implementation which talks to the underlying window manager to implement
the SWF bits and pieces. Upshot - makes blow all difference the platform
mono is being used on SWF on Windows will work and look the same as SWF
under *nix and look the same as SWF under OSX etc etc etc

Check out the latest mcs from cvs (it's all in the
mcs/class/Managed.Windows.Forms directory)
