No. It's about Mozilla getting a flash interpreter. SpiderMonkey
happens to be the place they're plugging that component in. As I
read it, Adobe is trying to get the Flash language standardized (as
ActionScript 4.0), and as part of that effort they've open sourced a
bunch of code to facilitate integrating it into Mozilla.
Arguing with an engineer is like wrestling with a pig in mud.
After a while, you realize the pig is enjoying it.
