I agree

Gnash is currently in alpha state (3rd alpha release) upstream, so I don't
think it's ready  for end users. Giving it to them as a replacement for
Macromedia's flash player before time could be counterproductive and make
users (teachers and pupils) not giving it a chance later, when it's ready.
