I think in Flash MX there is a way. something .caller. What you can do is this (Flash 5).

add another parameter to the function ie


function blah(par,par2){
trace(par2)

}


now when calling the function you can have the caller ID itself.

blah(mypar,"its me");

or
blah(thisvar,"its the other guy")
