Shouldn't we depend on released versions? I see that libsoup-2.4 needs
glib-2.15, and that's a development version of glib.
It looks like I would need to recompile glib, gtk and several other
libraries, and then libsoup-2.4. I may not get around to doing it soon.
Maybe swfdec could be backported to the latest libsoup 2.2.x? In many
cases, a backport is less intrusive that than a forward port. Or maybe
the patch for libsoup-2.4 could be held in a separate branch until
libsoup-2.4 is released?

You did a great job fixing things, and I realize that I shouldn't be
complaining about having to install a few libraries, but I'm afraid that
the current code will be getting less testing than it otherwise would.
