 Are your changes based on an older Gnash release, or 0.8.1 or cvs HEAD
? When you say a multi-threaded plugin, you mean it doesn't fork & exec
the standalone player ? Anyway, the way to proceed would be to post a
patch to our savannah site,
so we can look over the changes. For any of this work to be incorporated
into Gnash your company will also have to assign the copyright to the
FSF, as Gnash is an official GNU project.

  Hum... ideally it would need to be a backend, but if fit works under
GtkDFB, I guess that's ok too.
