I think nobody would seriously object having an optional, downloadable,
binary flash add-on. I think "currently not compiled for ARM" is a much
bigger problem than it seems. Currently Adobe's Flash is not even
available for x86_64. When I was wondering why nobody at Adobe seems to
have 64bit compiler I was told that part of the problem is that they
use a JIT compiler for Actionscript which happens to put out x86
opcodes. Good luck trying to get them port that to ARM.
