Yahoo to buy Tumblr? So will we now be able to embed Flickr more easily?

If Yahoo are to buy Tumblr, I’m wondering what this could mean for Flickr, which they also own. At the moment, it’s a pain embedding a Flickr image in a Tumblr page, you have to get the full embed code and paste that in. It also doesn’t recognise a full Flickr page’s URL as an image URL, on a image post.

You might think this isn’t a problem, but then look at the now deceased Posterous. You could post most rich media full page URLs into a Posterous post, and it would recognise that you were asking it to embed something – it certainly worked for Flickr anyway. I’m wondering if Yahoo will also connect up Tumblr and Flickr to do the same.
