Has this plugin been tested on a large scale basis ?
I suggest not to include this in the stable repository until it's been
tested in a large scale, to prevent sites depending on a working
solution from beeing set back by installing this.
I also suggest that one _don't_ announce that this fixes sound on thin
clients like one did with debian-edu 3.0, before it's actually tested to
see if it work.
