Any sources for a 'Lightbox' type class in AS3?

I have started designing an AS3 class version of the Lightbox image overlay function which is written in javascript. Before I get too deep into this, am I recreating the wheel? I can't help but think that someone has already made an AS3 class version for Flash available (either for fee or free). Can anyone point me in the right direction on this one?

...or is there an overriding advantage to integrating the javascript Lightbox with my flash site instead?

    There is one example here:

    It does seem to work quite well however I don't see why you couldn't add your own features and make the project your own.

    Also with this flash lightbox example the images get cut off for me. I'd be interested to see whether you could adjust the x positioning of the stage based on browser screen height.
