Hi David,

Great stuff. To give it a bit more exposure, shall we set you up with
a Tor blog account and you can post this there too? Mail me a preferred
username and I'll get that started.

And like everybody else here, please put my vote in for switching to
another nat-punching protocol that is more open. Plus a websocket or
javascript variant if that is starting to look feasible -- I feel pretty
dumb telling everybody how dangerous flash is, but then also telling
them about this cool flash bridge idea. :)
