Hi Dries

I would like to take over Flash Gallery. My strategy would be to 
maintain Flash Gallery 4.7 and then integrate into SWF Tools for 5.

SWF Tools is here: http://drupal.org/project/swftools

The goal of SWF Tools is to centralize Flash related modules, so taking 
of Flash Gallery would be *perfect*.

The benefits of SWF Tools are:
-- ships with GPL Flash Players
-- ships with GPL Flash replacement javascript.
