We have to have the legal right to check in code to the Apache Flex
repository.  We can have IDE-specific code as long as it has gone through
the right process to allow it.

Apache Flex cannot have this file checked in until it is cleared by Adobe.

I don't doubt those numbers, but last I'd heard, IE7 was the standard in
many enterprises still, at a much greater percentage.

If we're going to only have one template, it should support IE7.

Having more than one template might be a good idea.  There's lots of code in
history.js to support IE7 and older versions of FF and other browsers.
However, we won't be able to change FB and it will probably not handle
multiple templates.
