Searchable Flex applications

Today Adobe announced to support searching of Flash/Flex applications. The way I read it it will look for text and links in the applications. But what I don't get from the press release, is how content which is loaded dynamically into a Flex application (like product information from a database) will be indexed. Or will it be indexed at all? Seems like a problem, which will not happen with plain HTML pages with links. The search engine bot can follow the links to index all pages, but the search engine cannot just "click" on buttons in a Flex application. We just wait and see what the future brings.
