in fact Andreas had contacted me about his plugins some time ago
(beginning of the year? sorry, I do not have my archives available
from here). I had a look at his package for ubuntu and pointed out
to him several things that would have to be improved in order to be
integrated into debian. This concerned non-free code, and custom copies
of libraries. Andreas started to work on these issues, and rewrote part
of the code in order to replace non-free parts. I did not revceive
news from him since some time, but it is also possible that this my
fault since I'm currently working on debian less regularly than I used
to (this will change in the near future).

It would be great if the plugin could integrated the plugin in debian. 

Cheers -Ralf.
