The gist is as follows:
1) libflashsupport is still necessary in hardy (due to outdated alsa-lib 
and alsa-plugins in hardy);
2) libflashsupport is obsolete in intrepid (obviated by updated alsa-lib 
and alsa-plugins in intrepid).

That said, (1) often produces crashes, so there are PPAs of updated 
(backported) alsa-lib and alsa-plugins for hardy so that you can remove
