Revision 12282 adds the property case fixes and drops avm2.
--enable-avm2 is false by default, and if you try to enable it Gnash
won't compile. I'll try to fix this later. The AVM2 switch is useful to
keep for the future.

We've at least learnt a whole range of things not to do when
implementing AVM2 and a lot about AS3. The parsing code and some of the
structures are still useful, so they remain in trunk. We also have some

The essential thing for any possible new AVM2 implementation is: keep it
as separate as possible. Merging things later is massively easier than
trying to separate what doesn't belong together.

Use Gnash, the GNU Flash Player!
