Anybody know if it is still necessary to use 64 bit nspluginwrapper
with the 64 bit flash-plugin. Does this have any advantages at all?

(I am for the moment not considering that you might need the wrapper
 for other plugins like Adobe Reader).

When I installed the 64 bit flash-plugin it immediately got wrapped
(nswrapper.libflashplayer.so) so I uninstalled nspluginwrapper.x86_64
and libflashplayer.so seems to work just as well as
nswrapper.libflashplayer.so though I have not tested it extensively.

I nspluginwrapper.x86_64 needed for anything at all?
