This would be good, except that Adobe doesn't officially support
anything  but r115 and are unlikely to host r48 separately.
What we could do is change the installer to download the entire
fp9_archive.zip file and pull the r48 file from that.  I know that
the file is ~65MB but it is a solution that would work.  Just don't do
an md5sum on the entire archive since it is likely to change.
(You could use zip to check the integrity of the archive)

Another possibility would be to ask Adobe for an exception to the
distribution clause in the license.....


Looking at http://blogs.adobe.com/penguin.swf/ it appears that r115 is
the final release for flash 9 update 3.
