Full screen Flash 9 standalone in Linux

It would be really useful to be able to open a standard Flash 9 .swf in the standalone player that you can get for linux at

I envision something like this:

./flashplayer --full-screen ~/some_flash.swf

If I could do that, then I would be able to incorporate flash into the "off-line, demo" kiosk units I make using DSL on compact flash - that would make the boss happy. Unfortunately, everything on the net seems to indicate one needs to put some actionscript in the first frame of the flash in the "authoring" stage of things. That would defeat the purpose of my project though, since I can't guarantee our resellers or other folk will all be able to do this.

Maybe I'll have to spend some of my quality free time reading up on SWHX.
