Macromedia to Open Flash Player Source

Can you imagine if people started making the UI out of Flash 4. Or better yet borrowing its alpha transparency layer. There are a lot of cool effects that one can do with Flash."

Should Flash be integrated into Mozilla? Or should their tasty, optimized vector-drawing code be cannibalized for the inevitable SVG implementation?

You can put animated GIFs in the actual UI, so why not Flash ?

The license problem is another story...

By the way, should Mozilla use PNGs first ?
