Hey everyone,

There are currently 5 packages in unstable that dump plugins under
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, not to mention several more contrib/non-free
installers that do the same thing.


Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to handle plugins for
mozilla, mozilla-snapshot and now mozilla-firebird in such a way that
plugins are automatically symlinked/delinked whenever a new mozilla-like
browser is installed? Where should they go?

If I were to start writing an update-mozilla-plugins script for use in
mozilla packages, what pitfalls might I encounter?
