Default continuous auto scrolling text loop

im after achieving an effect similar to movie credits with text automatically scrolling upwards, im loading the text in via xml and have for example

item one
item two
item three

but need it to scroll so that user sees an endless loop

item one
item two
item three
item one
item two
item three

any ideas of the best way to do this please?

Default Idea

Break up into 2 MC so that when one leaves the screen you can attach it to the bottom and keep it scrolling up.
For intance

SomeMovieClip.OnEnterFrame = function () {
_root.creditsA._y -= 5
_root.creditsB._y -= 5
if (creditsA._y > 100) {
_root.creditsA._y -= (creditsA._height + creditsB._height)
if (creditsB._y > 100) {
_root.creditsB._y -= (creditsA._height + creditsB._height)
