http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phlogiston_theory

Combustion releases Phlogiston, Phlogistinator releases Phlogiston which causes combustion. Cloud is combustible, therefore it has Phlogiston, therefore the Phlogistinator can set it off.

Phlogiston combustible Phlogiston combustible Phlogistonator fake impossible science

Besides, it'd be irresponsible of me to force Plog pyros to only use... what, the Volcano Fragment? to ignite the cloud.

Of course, I don't think many Phlogistinator Pyros would want to use it. Probably run with the other Flare Guns for quick, ranged burning.

Quick question: When the cloud is out, should the flare gun be locked until the cloud vanishes, or should you be able to cancel an old cloud by firing a new flare?

According to what I understood so far this is exactly what happens

That sounds better than the alternative anyway. Not good to lock your weapon down. It's not like it's a Jar.

First thing I thought: Demomen's Sticky Bomb Launchers

Yeah, there is a bit of overlap, but it wouldn't be a good substitute for a Demoman, since the explosion, if triggered, only deals 90 damage. If you're trying to destroy a Sentry, go with the Demoman. The important bit is using the gas and explosion and fire as a deterrent (afterburn is quite a bit more dangerous if you just took 90 damage from the source of fire), teaming up with other guys to trigger it, and, perhaps most importantly, giving the Pyro a truly large explosion-jump option. It gives you more jumping range and a stronger explosion than the Detonator, at the cost of being slower, and less likely for you to be able to trigger the explosive on your own.
