LineGlowing lines

A very cool, glowing thread/line effect. Also the first one to use my new code-base to help people understand it. I've even added my butterfly logo!

The effect itself is a lot more complicated than you'd say on first glance. First of all, the line itself. It's very rough but never looks 'jagged'. This is because of an experiment with bezier-curves. Then the color is interesting, as I had to make my own HSV calculations (flash doesn't have them) and make my own 'fade' class that can make any color go from white to that color to black with a simple value. It looks rather pretty though, doesn't it?
