I agree with illiken, as a longtime Flash developer I have to say that I won't even consider using SVG until I see it do something useful/impressive that Flash can't. I think I speak for most designers and developers when I ask why should I take the time and effort to learn something new when I've already got all I could ask for, and I already know it well. As for SVG, the only thing that matters is will developers use it even with good tools? If the answer is yes, the rest will follow. Let's also not forget plugin size, Flash didn't get to the position it is today with a large download, let's see SVG compete there.
