It is the same plugin available as libflashsupport from other sites,
and is claimed to be working for large sites. I agree that it would
be good to have this confirmed.

Any volunteers to test it on a large scale?

It is a good idea to verify that it actually work before announcing
it. Not sure what you refer to with sound and 3.0, but can report
that Bjarne in Skolelinux Drift AS got it working for him. I welcome
more test reports, also on a large scale.
It include a few fixes commited to upstream svn in march, so I hope
this solve any stability issues that are rumored to affect the old
libflashsupport package. Upstream svn is
if you want to have a look at the changes.
