It is easy enough to implement, but I think it will cause more support
issues like we had today.  Where folks overlay the wrong version of the AIR
sdk manually and it breaks everything.  I dont know if it is worth it.

Moreover, having the AIR SDK allows folks to quickly create mobile and
desktop versions.  Having to download AIR sdk at a later point would create
an unnecessary  barrier.
