[Mageia-dev] Providing 32-bit flash-player-plugin in x86_64 nonfree?

Currently our flash-player-plugin pkg is only built on 32-bit, as the
64-bit adobe build is still horribly out of date.

However, this is problematic for 64-bit users, as installing the 32-bit
flash-player-plugin is cumbersome as nonfree32 media is not added on
64-bit (and adding it would not be very nice, as the media list is
already way too cluttered).

One option would be to build a x86_64 package that actually contains the
32-bit flash player (and note that in description), with a dependency on
nspluginwrapper. When a proper 64-bit build is released by adobe, it
would be replaced with the 64-bit player.

Do you think this should be done, or would it add too much confusion?
