It's not possible to access HTTP Response Headers in web-based
Flash :'(

Therefore web-based Flash applications have no chance of honouring the
seconds in the "Retry-After" header when rate limited using the Search

Would it be possible for twitter to modify the output XML to include
this value?

The current output is not very useful at all:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <error>You have been rate limited. Enhance your calm.</error>
