If you read the entire text they say that because Chrome and Firefox
already suport OOP plugins, so in principle there would be no reason
to use nspluginwrapper unless you need to run a 32bit plugin in a
64bit machine or viceversa. I don't know of any reason why a 32bit
plugin could not work in a 32bit machine with nspluginwrapper. Is
there any?
