Playbook front facing camera

Is there a way to access the front facing camera on playbook / webworkds?  I have used the rear camera with great success but have not yet seen any docs on using the fron camera...

If you are just using the standard WebWorks API, the PlayBook defaults to the rear camera, but then the user can press the switch camera button on the camera screen to view the front camera. The only difference from a programmatic point of view will be the difference in file size and image dimensions between pictures taken on the rear facing camera versus the front facing camera.  Do you want to default to the front facing camera? This should be possible through a wrapper to AIR.
