Sure, then I think it makes perfect sense to include this in the
PackageKit source tree. I think it just needs a --enable-mozilla-plugin
in configure.ac and stick the files in contrib/mozilla-plugin

If we change it to use the dbus interface, then it's not gnome specific
-- and we get the native KDE stuff when the KPackageKit guys implement
the same session interface.

Plus, putting it in tree allows me to keep it compiling even if we
change API/ABI in the future.

Could you prepare a patch, of do you want me to have a go?

Richard.
