A nice analysis, one problem you haven't mentioned, which is probably  
pretty rare.

The NDAS drivers for the Ximeta NAS devices do not compile on a 64- 
bit platform, and trying to use the 32-bit ones is a bit  
problematical (though I haven't tried very hard I admit).

So in addition to the Flash problem, which doesn't bother me, I can't  
at present access my NDAS devices from my 64-bit Gentoo box.

As I said, a rare and somewhat trivial problem, but something to be  
aware of, but it certainly should bother a typical Myth installation.
