Re: spry widgets and accessibility?

Is Spry even active? As far as I know, there hasn't been any mention of
work on Spry since 2 years ago, and I don't think there was any ARIA
support in it back then. Adobe is invested in jQuery now, so I wouldn't be
surprised if they've actually abandoned Spry and just haven't announced it.
