OK, I'm beginning to understand that your "generator" is not necessarily the
desired solution for Apache Flex going forward, so it is fine how it works
since it is not distributing Adobe stuff, just copying it around.  You can
have the generator download Adobe stuff from Adobe, but I would make it
clear what the licensing rules are around it.
