XML -> Flash

Is anyone out there doing development work with the various tools for generating Flash UIs using XML? I know the Lazslo Presentation Server looks seriously cool.  MacroMedia Flex (previously named Royale) has a beta program, but I haven't been accepted to it yet. Is anyone working with Flex or Lazslo?  Is it meeting your expectations up to now? Are there similar products from other vendors I should look into?

This approach seems very intuitive and powerful...I'm just wondering if the tools are ready yet.

I did the backend of a flash gui that used XMLRPC for it's functions. Even though xml is pretty verbose there wasn't enough load to make a difference.

Tom, can you report any experiences from this project? Did it achieve a satisfactory outcome? Was the UI a success? Were there any significant issues in coupling a Flash front-end using XML-RPC?
