When we first started talking about Maven and Apache Flex, I asked Adobe
Legal and they insisted on having folks explicitly accept the Adobe EULA
(via some UI gesture) before downloading Adobe dependencies.  The sense I
got from poking around Maven Central is that the jars out there are under
open licenses.  Chris Dutz offered to create a Maven extension to do that.
 If someone can point me to the jars in Maven Central, I'll ask Adobe
Legal whether it is ok for them to be there and downloaded without
explicit acceptance, but they could come back and ask me to remove all of
them.  Or maybe this time they'll cave and say it is ok.

It might be.  Not everyone asks legal before doing things at Adobe.  If I
had, I probably wouldn't have a blog.
