I even struggled with some basic AS syntax (array.length not .count as i was trying), so if I used Flash regularly I think that would have taken me around one minute to do. I had to do this for a project I worked on some months back and it took me best part of a day to get everything in place, setting up a php to xml parser loading the xml into flash, xmlObj-ing the xml when loaded!
