Yes, by default Flash uses ALSA directly.  However, last time I checked, ALSA 
has trouble with multiple sound sources, especially if the sources are all 
trying for exclusive access (*glares at arts*).  I use this plugin as part of 
a system I set up on my computer so that ALL sound is sent through the 
PulseAudio daemon, which handles mixing and sending the actual sound to ALSA.  
That way I don't need to worry about program X claiming exclusive control 
over ALSA and killing the rest of the sound on the system.
