Thanks for the patch! I'm cc'ing gallery-devel so that we can try to
get this into the 2.3 release.

Hm, interesting question. I suspect that we can do something like this
by using a framework similar to our "link item" approach. You could
create a new entity which contains a link to a YouTube URL, and have the
entity's renderer generate the HTML which would show the flash movie.
This would be kind of a hybrid between the linkitem and flashvideo
modules. I can help you with more details if you're still interested.
