I know most of that, in fact one of my requests to Pat in the past was
having a seperate xulrunner package as it makes things much more
flexible regarding the Mozilla products but his reply was that i486 is
repackaging the binaries so it doesnt make sense having a seperate
xulrunner package there.

The library needed by those plugins is libxul.so ?
At least thats what i get from reading the xulrunner README on SBo.
That library is already provided by mozilla-firefox.
Couldn't that be used instead with the addition of a doinst.sh which runs
ldconfig (in the mozilla-firefox package) instead of a seperate xulrunner?
