OK, that's enough speculation for now.  Let's move on.  I will probably ask
my management chain every year on the anniversary of Apache Flex's
acceptance into the incubator if this is the year we will open source it.
Last time I asked, the answer was not "never".

But for now, this podling has to assume there won't be any improvements in
the flash player and make the best of what we have now.  And I am still
convinced that what we have now is capable of really impressive stuff.
