i don't see how your comment applies.

giorgos addressed the 2 scenarios

A. happy with os1 app, not bother with os2
B. happy with os2, but likes a os1 app so wants to have it ported or
find equivalent.

i think giorgos is saying that we have scenario B (while your 
non-hypothetical is really A) where happy fbsd user would like some
other os1 app. i don't see anything wrong with that despite my personal
feelings about flash.
