I used to have it working in the go-oo at least and Florian had a patch
to embed some flash application as a docking pane for some team pane.
the patch is not even in an integrable state and there were some
problems with focus to input text in the flash app.

As far as I'm concerned, it's OK to drop it as that patch will never
make its way in.
