Playerglobal is not optional so this doesn't apply.  We got a ruling that
playerglobal is a build prerequisite.

I think the key word here is "choose", which I think you are doing with the
y/n option you added, because that helps make the identification of its
license more "clear".

Well, in a script, I'm not sure how you can display such that someone can
read it without stopping, so I think you will need a y/n.

It appears to be under Adobe Flex when bundled with Adobe Flex and under the
FlashPlayer EULA when you download from the FP downloads page.

Probably good enough.

Thanks for making the changes.
