I've started to work on an gnash upgrade. But  keep the gnash PKGBUILD
in unsupported until the update is actually done. (ie I might change
my mind).

BTW, I'll probably use agg for the renderer instead of opengl for
performance reason: http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/13443.  This was
done in the PKGBUILD in AUR. I might also change the media from
gstreamer to ffmpeg.  I've read somewhere that ffmpeg was better on
Youtube. Currently, gnash 0.8.4 or 0.8.5 doesn't work on Youtube as
far as I could tell.
