Thanks Greg.  Do you happen to know if those non-permissive licenses allow
for re-distribution within a company?  Are those packages you manually
download full-fledged Maven artifacts or does someone else Maven-ize them?

To others:  Is manual download of the Adobe stuff sufficient?  Or is this
going to be an important barrier for Apache Flex that we need to solve?
