Yes, if we don't have to touch the Adobe packages we will be much better

I just got tentative approval from legal, but still need approval from
runtime product management.

One important thing, legal may want you to develop this plug-in without
checking it into any public source code repository until they have a chance
to see it work.  They may change their minds later and let us develop the
plug-in in the open, but that's their position for now.  I guess you'd give
me the plug-in and I would get Maven working on my computer and screen-share
with them.

So, I think you can get started on this, but don't check in into Apache SVN
or GitHub just yet.
