They should likely change preferences if they love FOSS
as a development tool can't be really free if it only targets
non-free architectures.

AS3 support is coming up slowly, but the best is if they avoid
it from the start, and only reconsider it when ready.

I guess this tool they refer to is Haxe, being the *only*
free software tool capable of compiling AS3.
As an alternative, Ming would be best, MTASC also acceptable.

Note that Gnash also still doesn't support blend modes and
bitmap filters (introduced in SWF8) to their beast bet, to
be free software friendly, would be targetting SWF7 anyway
(let alone AS3).
