Thanks. We should also see how suitable this update is for a SRU to
intrepid. I think there have been quite a few bugs fixed that would be
nice to have there. However, we have to ensure that previously
generated wrappers dont explode because of ABI breakage or
something. So test the upgrade path like:

 1. install current nspluginwrapper
 2. install flashplugin-nonfree
 3. upgrade nspluginwrapper
 4. check that stuff still works
( 5. reinstall flashplugin-nonfree and check that all is fine ;))

Also we should consider to improve how upgrades are handled for

One idea is that packages register the wrapped plugins in
/var/lib/nspluginwrapper/plugins.d/ directory, so nspluginwrapper
package can auto-recreate wrapped plugins on upgrade/install in
postinst. That would help us to not fear ABI breakage in future I
