I think you are mixing up Sarge/Etch/Sid:

Sarge (stable) has mozilla-plugin-vlc version 0.8.1.svn20050314-1sarge1
and libsysfs1 version 1.3.0-7.

Etch (testing) has libsysfs2 (2.0.0-6) and currently no version of
mozilla-plugin-vlc available.

Sid (unstable) has mozilla-plugin-vlc (0.8.5.debian-2) and libsysfs2
(2.0.0-7). I have this combination installed and I have not noticed any
problems with it. I also don't find any grave bugs listed for it. Maybe
you could post your /etc/apt/sources.list and the output of "apt-cache
policy mozilla-plugin-vlc" so that it is clear which version you are
trying to install. 

As far as the "new mirror honk" is concerned: I have never heard of it.
If it is a normal Debian mirror then the normal Debian archive signing
key should be enough. If it provides additional packages then it also
should provide the signing key(s) for those. What is the URL of this
