The question is if you want to use our flashplugin package then. It
depends on nspluginwrapper and thus pulls in many dependencies.

The reason I didn't put this into the plugin path is because firefox
throws a warning each time you start it, which might unnecessarily
concern users. I am wondering if it wouldn't be better if you (Opera
user) just added a symlink in the plugin folder or added the folder with
the flash plugin to the plugin search path.

I like it the way it is now, but if you feel strong about changing it,
that wouldn't kill anyone either.
