Hi Matthew,

There aren't any packages providing chromium extensions yet in debian,
so yours could be the first!

Unfortunately since a path is not yet set, you'll need to forge it yourself.

There is one chromium extension in ubuntu, unity-chromium-extension,
which might be a useful guide.  I haven't looked at it myself.

If you need any changes on the chromium packaging side for this, I'll
be happy to help.

Best wishes,
