Scott and Nikolas,
	I'll try to get the linuxplugin-wrapper port to work with Flash9
for Linux and then I'll submit the change upstream to the maintainer. I
too am tired of the fact that Flash is so ubiquitous, but don't have
much choice but to get it working.
	Aw well.. when in Rome, one must do as the Romans do.. even if
it involves "hideous" plugins/content :).
