I understand your frustration, sorry that I didn't notice the
FLEX-33210 problem earlier, but as I said i'm very surprised that no
one else here seems to be bothered by Flex software blindly installing
stuff on user's boxes.

If it's just my opinion and a few others say that they don't care
about releasing the installer with  FLEX-33210 unresolved, I'll accept

It's not a legal matter as far as I'm concerned, more a quality issue,
I personally don't want any Apache software to install stuff on user's
boxes without giving them the opportunity to check what's happening

Let's see what others think about  FLEX-33210 - mentors for example?
