The default plugin description has both a "compatibility" string
intended to work with flash detection packages out there _and_
gnash specific version. It looks like this:

Shockwave Flash 9.0 r0.
Gnash trunk, the GNU SWF Player. Copyright (C) 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 
Free Software Foundation, Inc.
Gnash comes with NO WARRANTY, to the extent permitted by law. You may 
redistribute copies of Gnash under the terms of the GNU General Public License. 
For more information about Gnash, see
Compatible Shockwave Flash 9.0 r0.

As you can see the _first_ and _last_ lines have the
compatibility stuff.
The second line starts with 'Gnash' followed by a release
version ('trunk' in this case but normally something like 0.8.7).
Then comes copyright notice and link.

It would be great if you could detect that, should be as simple
as looking for 'Gnash' in the whole description.

It's an hard work to get there really. Hopefully "at some point"
someone will show up with funds or time to complete it :/
