I have to quote Jerry on this one and add a few things ...

If this is truely that important to you IMPLAMENT IT , thats the great thing 
about FL/OSS you have the RIGHT to do so.

This has gone way beond the scope of the -devel list ( as there is no /work/ 
being done on this ) please move this thread elsewhere. The developers have 
made their statements clear in that they dont think the way to go 
about "fixing" your issue is the way you propose ( e.g. installing and 
maintaing 32bit browersers on 64bit systems to apease closed source vendors ) 
so you will have to either rally some devlopers togather to do this or do it 
your self, but you have that RIGHT under the GPL.

Unless you have something more CONSTRUCTIVE to add , please refrain from 
holding a non-devlopment disscussion on the development list

P.S. Do you really thing not having flash player or win32codecs stops me from 
using my ppc ibook with kubuntu every day? these things dont make an OS
