First, I don't know what happened to the plastik and Quicksilver
tarballs - they *were* hosted on SBo, but they disappeared at some
point for whatever reason.  Unfortunately, I don't have them anywhere
locally (I might at home though), so I can't restore them.

I'm currently working on a rewrite of that script, and I'm almost
done, I think.  The fonts package doesn't seem to be necessary any
more, so it's gone, and the MPlayer website lists "Blue" as the
default skin, so that's the one I'm using.

See http://rlworkman.net/MPlayer/ for the current working version...
