Create a separate project for the assets.
Optionally, to automate pushing the SWFs to the main proect, you can create an assets folder in the main projects source folder and setup your sub-application projects to point to that folder as an output folder which you setup as a linked resource.
To create a linked folder resource to an absolute file system location:
1) File > New > Folder
3) Specify a folder name "output" (you could even name it bin-debug if you delete the original folder)
4) Specify the main project's assets folder relative to the workspace: "DOCUMENTS\MainProject\src\assets"
5) Change the output folder of your sub-application to "output"

Thank you very much for a fast and helpful answer!
Is it possible to edit the path defined by a linked resource, once it has been set up?
Say I want to change it from $[variable]/assets/subpages to just $[variable]/assets.
