layers. Please do *not* file any bugs regarding adobe flash. We know
it doesn't work on PA. Flash is completely broken when it comes to
audio it we can neither support it through our ESD compat nor through
our ALSA compat. Due to the closed source nature of Flash we cannot go
and fix their code. I will eventually add some workarounds for
this. But it's low priority on my list, given the closed source nature
of Flash. Oh, and Flash is evil anyway. ;-)

Does that mean users installing F8 will not be able to use YouTube, etc.? That sounds like a big showstopper for a lot of people out there...

Last time I looked F8 didn't ship Flash.

Which doesn't change the fact that it's important functionality for users.

As I mentioned, I am working on some solution that can improve the
situation.

Your statement in the announcement sounded very pessimistic in that regard. What I wanted to point out is that it's probably not a good idea to make the switch to PA before this is fixed because of the possible user backlash. If by "low priority" you mean "I'll get this in before the final release" then that's obviously not a problem anymore. It just didn't come across like this in the announcement.
