Bundled Flash

It's come to my attention that a number of packages contain Flash (.swf) files,
but absolutely none of them have BuildRequires on a free software Flash
toolchain, nor do any of them seem to be shipping the source for these files.

It has never been permissible to included prebuilt files of this nature in
Fedora [1], and FPC unequivocally stated during today's meeting that they have
no interest in making an exception for this.

Please remove this prohibited content from your packages, or ensure that any
included .swf files are built from source using a free software toolchain like
`swfc` during the %build phase.  A list of affected packages sorted by owner is
included below, and I'll be filing bugs for these soon.
