I wouldn't consider using nspluginwrapper on 32-bit a fix just yet, as even
on a 64-bit install with nspluginwrapper, Flash crashes still brings down
the entire Firefox instance. I think the only sensible solution is to
include Pulse Audio, but don't turn it on by default, let the user turn on
Pulse Audio if they want it. Pulse Audio is way too unstable and incomplete
to even be considered for an LTS release.
