I like to get it DRM free, because I don't know what DRM really does. Off  
course if someone like it with DRM support that will be no problem for me.  
But I am sure many people don't like DRM.

The reason is, that many Websites depend on Flashpluin 8 & higher.  
Alternative "Gnash" Builds are not ready for it.

Is it legal, to crack Adobe Flash 9 and build a DRM free Flashplugin  
package?  Then keep this package in AUR for those people how don't like  

Make it idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot.
