Lennart or a flash-plugin guy can tell us for certain what flash-plugin
needs (I've no idea what's in pulseaudio-lib). It's most likely a
library file that it dlopen(3)'s. Perhaps flash-plugin can do a:

Requires: %{_libdir}/libaoss.so.0

or some new virtual package name.

BTW, since flash-plugin is an i386 package, wouldn't a Require:
pulseaudio-lib be enough for it to require the .i386 version?
