Asking the Mozilla Devs
All right; the long and short of it is that the "simple" plugin from last time didn't register or otherwise work. As such, I decided to pop over to irc.mozilla.org and see if I couldn't straighten things out directly with the developers. Apparently, the XPCOM plugin interfaces are deprecated >_<. So… there's no reason not to just use the plain-jane C NPAPI interface. I'll go ahead and design with that in mind.
All three can be done using NPAPI.
I can't remember if konquorer can handle gtk-plugin-stuff...
I think Christophe started a KPart-plugin, but couldn't get i working properly.

Note: I have been told by someone who recently downloaded the SWF specification that Macromedia has added a restrictive license to the end of the document. Because of this, newcomers will not be able to get a copy of the spec and still be able to contribute to GPLFlash's development. Since other developers (such as myself) already have access to the specification without the license, this should not pose a major problem in the short term. Please bear with us, and do not seek out or use this specification in conjunction with the GPLFlash project.
