Hello fellow TUs,

I have come across people who picked a flashplugin package from the AUR 
over the one in [extra]. I feel that x86_64 flashplugin packages should 
be removed from the AUR now that the official one supports both 
architectures. Furthermore, Opera seems to get along just fine with 
flashplugin from [extra] so we don't need Opera-specific packages either.

Packages in question are:

http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=18096 (flashplayer-opera64)
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=21601 (flashplugin-alpha-64)
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=17442 (flashplugin-beta-opera)
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=18695 (flashplugin-mozilla, 
maintainer believes this should stay because "the official plugin 
doesn't have mms.cfg" - not sure what this is :>)
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=14074 (flashplugin-opera)
http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=21607 (flashplugin-x86_64)

 From the above, I'd say that the following can be safely deleted:


Any opinions on this? Do you think we should proceed with the removal of 
these packages in order to avoid confusion between them and flashplugin 
from [extra]?
