Dave, you forgot to mention Macromedia's well touted SmartClips. I
interviewed at a company that was using smart clips to generate multiple
custom files. They reused many of the same elements and used Flash's feature
to good use. Used this way it even eliminates the need for programmers
entirely.

The new FlashMX sites are full of people authoring their own interface
tools. Macromedia has an on-line resource called Exchange:

And here are a few documents discussing what they are about and how to get
started making your own.
