No, of course not. But that's a general problem with Linux, not a specific
to 64-bit. I think we're all looking forward to the gradual demise of Flash in
favour of something that's actually a standard. Or at least to something where
the client implementations keep up with the servers. Because that's one of the
problems with Flash -- that people with servers unnecessarily rush to update to
the latest version, leaving the Linux clients in the dist.
