Fine, I think nobody wants you to commit acts that would be substantively
piracy. I though the tar archives of dlls were redistributable but
apparently I'm wrong.
I agree with the earlier suggestion that package-level redirects would
be a good solution for some of this sort of thing. So, for example,
the Fedora yum repository could carry a redirect that would send
queries for flash-plugin to the macromedia site.
