I know it was you :) I just meant to say that the original 
libflashsupport (with ALSA support, iirc) was made by Adobe.

You are a much better judge for this sort of things than most of us :) 
But even if the implementation of libflashsupport sucks, it at least 
gives "the community" the opportunity to fix or adapt proprietary 
software to our new APIs. And _that_ is a nice idea which should be 

But yeah, writing a clean ALSA client that doesn't try to be clever is 
also a very good starting point.
