Please enlighten us to the recurring problems you have that FatELF would solve
There's only one ~/.mozilla/plugins
Since my $HOME is NFS mounted across a mix of 32-bit and 64-bit OSes, I'm basically screwed. 32-bit plugins won't work with a 64-bit Firefox and vice versa. Yes, you could argue the application should be fixed, but the same applies to gimp and to countless other apps, which means an awful lot of applications are out there to fix. If I could get a fat libflashplayer.so, for example, everything would Just Work™. I'm not suggesting that the whole OS should be fat binaries/shared libraries. But I'd like the option to use them where they make sense, as I believe they do here. Again, if you have a simple solution that doesn't involve FatELF or something similar, please let me know.
