That's why there will be nspluginwrapper. That is a 64bit browser plugin
that can load 32bit plugins. It was the common way of using flash in a
64bit browser before Adobe released a 64bit flash plugin.

As for wine, I have no idea about what it supports with what
architecture, but AFAIK there's still no working x86_64 version that
runs win32 applications.
