   This seems to become increasingly important.  Plugins should not be 
crashing browsers, and these special viewers (flash, movies, etc) tend to 
crash.  That's why I chose to make kswfdec call out to kswfplay and embed it 
with QXEmbed instead of calling the player natively.  I have even been 
considering this as an alternative for kwintv-rewrite now too.  It seems to 
really help.
