To clarify this further, in practical terms we'll stay dependent on the
Flash Player which will likely not be open sourced for a variety of
reasons. There it the Tamarin project which is the ActionScript VM donated
to the Mozilla Foundation, the SWF specs are available and there is no
legal obstacle to anyone writing a SWF renderer.

There is thought about looking at different export targets.
