In addition to stripping out flash/shockwave, consider supporting SVG 
(scalar vector graphics), an xml based alternative to flash.  There just 
happens to be a perl module to dynamically generate SVG files.  SVG 
rendering engines seem not as fast as flash right now, but because its xml 
some browsers are already beginning to support SVG natively.

Best of luck stripping out flash :)
