	The last time I looked into this:
	Adobe does not (seem to) have a problem with FreeBSD; indeed, I
got the impression they barely know we exist.
	What they seem resistant to is publishing a complete and
accurate specification that would allow third parties to write
interface code.
	This is said to be changing with Flash 10.  /If/ I remember
correctly, the guts will still be proprietary but it will connect to
a wrapper whose interface will publicly available.  (Search keyword
= "ActionScript" ???)
