Looks interesting.. it's only a "free programming tool" if it's free to
get involved surely? (darn BBC!) They should have added a note about
users having to agree to Adobe's strict terms before they could use it:

For sure - That EULA is notoriously evil:

"The Adobe EULA for Flash forbids anyone who has installed their Flash
tools or plugin from working on Flash technologies. This has had a
chilling effect on the development of free Flash players, since a
developer must either choose to decide that Adobe won't sue them over
this, or to do what Gnash does, which is a slow and inefficient, clean
room, reverse engineering project."
