If you can get firefox's plugin technology fixed such that it gives
users a choice as to which flash implementation to choose... you
should champion that.  A fedora specific fix isn't that interesting to
me.  But if you can convince firefox developers to extend how their
plugin technology works so our users or anyone's users can choose
between open and closed flash plugins..well then.. that's a win for

I'm not denying this. Open flash technology exists, you know about it,
you know its not as good as it could be. Put your passion into
figuring out how we can make that open technology better and legally
distributable. Hint: tying the open flash plugins to codeina and
enhancing codeina's capability to expose multiple open vendors. Get
people fired up about that.. not about including easy to grab
proprietary software.
