I was wondering if the plugins package should be upgraded?

There is (in my system) both a plugins and a vlplugins package.
Don't know the difference between them. I suppose both come installed by default, but I might have installed one of them myself.

In any case, we won't be able to upgrade plugins (or vlplugins), and mplayerplug-in gets installed on top, with all being listed as installed in gslapt.

Perhaps a new plugins package could also include other releases (like flash 10).
