Just one more idea - how about we do it ourselves. I'm guessing there are a
number of people who want to have native flash 9 working in the netscape family
of browsers, in particular firefox. Maybe the maintainer(s) who put together
flash 7 can let us know what needs to be done, and we could help each other
with creating the code together. It could be an opportunity for new people to
learn how to code for FreeBSD, I suspect there are many out there who want to
contribute, but are not that sure how (the ports system alone can be
intimidating at first glance). So how about we get together and show each other

Just a thought, Tim.
