  Yeah, I just noticed that problem. There was a problem I vaguely
having to deal with how the package is named, guess it's time to clear
that up and do it right.

  I wouldn't consider snapshots to be stable, that'd be more for releases.

  They should be pretty much the same.

  It should be in both.

  I thought I fixed that, arg....

  I'd like to see this work too. :-) I guess I'll take a break from RTMP
and MIPS hacking and make another attempt to fix xpi package building.
Where I could use help is making sure the XPCOM support actually works,
as the plugin needs that to find the executables. I'd actually prefer to
not statically link the gnash executable, but as the users profile
directory is always different, I haven't figured out a good way to
handle that.
