and unhappy users because their software runs slower, apparently you've
(intentionally?) missed that.  There is absolutely no reason to punish all
sanely written apps for one badly written proprietary one.  As I said
earlier, if you can't live without the proprietary blob and for whatever
reason can't just use the 32-bit one using nspluginwrapper (as 64-bit one is
not in a yum repository using the 64-bit one is a security risk, because
very few people will keep tracking new versions of it, downloading them as
tarball and installing them), let's do the workarounds in nspluginwrapper or
browser for only, not in glibc where it will affect all
