I'm sorry I haven't emailed out about this but I had worked up a package 
of my own last week (sorry, its been busy with school having started 
this month) and it stopped working a bit and crashed firefox once or 
twice within an hour.  It worked *well* when it did work, but sometimes 
it would just stop inserting itself as a plugin after showing a few 
different flash sites.  Also, it doesn't look like a flash plugin to 
noscript, so that sort of sucks, too. :)

I'm guessing a few more months of development will make nspluginwrapper 
usable if its being actively worked on, but I don't have the resources 
during my workday to hack on it in the near future.
