copyright violation in libflash

Hi Aubin!

Olivier Debon (upstream maintainer of libflash) just told me that
some files in libflash cannot be licensed under the GPL:


because they are (or appear to be) a derived work from macromedia's
copyrighted code. he said he's working on a replacement and will
release a fixed version in a few weeks.

please could you invistigate on this? it could be that libflash needs to
be removed from debian until the issue is solved.

I'm CCing debian-legal
