Yep, I would love to see browser_linux_plugins for Linux binary.

I feel much more safe if it's in the different place other than  
browser-plugins for avoid future conflict if Adobe, Macromedia and etc  
have decided to create a native one. Also, it will be nice to have  
browser_linux_plugins for all other Linux browsers (linux-opera,  
linux-firefox and etc) can point on the browser_linux_plugins in case if  
we want to add Linux version of mplayerplug-in and etc.
