This is a plan that is practical and which I fully support: if we can
unload eToys but not load it back, then let's just include eToys in the
full image that we distribute and allow everyone the one way option of
removing it. I don't mind at all eliminating the Flash logo, the welcome
windows and other stuff every time I begin working with a newly
downloaded image. The fact that I can't get any of these easily back if
I want has never been a problem since I could just start over from a
clean image.

Sure, a reloadable eToys would be even better but I doubt it will
