A native English speaker, when learning German, will generally remark "Wow! Because of this feature in German, I now understand English a little better."
Programming languages are the same way. Learning another object-oriented language will help you identify how features in ActionScript work (or don't work). And learning a language from another paradigm entirely (functional or procedural, probably) will help you identify weaknesses and strengths of object-oriented programming. Not to mention that a programmer who knows AS3, Java, and Lisp is immensely more valuable than one who just knows AS3. It proves you have the capacity to learn, which is a very marketable trait.
