Any SWF I'll have given you will be very old and not 0.5-compliant, I  

But you can grab the current Potlatch (either just steal the SWF, or  
compile it yourself from potlatch.cgi using Ming), and just put your  
username/password in the 'token' variable (sent via the HTML) as  
username+password. If you don't want to expose your username and  
password in the HTML I guess you could set it via a cookie or  
something else that Javascript can read.

It has to be on the OSM server AIUI - that's the point of

I guess you've got svn access so could commit one - would need to go  
in /sites/rails_port/public/ .
