I guess it depends on what you mean by "extra work and heart ache", but all I had to do was extract the .tar.gz into ~/.opera/plugins and restart Opera.

So far it seems to work at least as well as going through nspluginwrapper.

I had to do
$sudo cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/opera/plugins/
but result is the same - working like it should be looong time ago ;)
