Default Generate files with no server interaction?

I know Shared Objects are the standard way to store data from flash, but these seem to have a number of limitations. I'm wondering if it's possible for the flashplayer to manipulate regular files.

It's my understanding that through FileReference you can load a file of the user's choice into memory. My question is, would it be possible to manipulate this file then present it back to the user for download? Possibly using javascript to assist?

I understand that it might be possible using server-side technology, but I'm wondering if it can be done without taking hard drive space and bandwidth from the server.

So it would appear. Thanks, I'll play around with that when I have a chance.
