That as it may be, but it doesn't make this kind of helper package any
less useful.

While you are at it, it would be nice if we could have a google talk
plugin package...

The upstream one does funny things with it's scripts relating to setting
up urpmi repositories etc.

I'm not necessarily against an upstream repository, but we should make
it easier than the hacky way they do it (modifying urpmi setup via a
cronjob as they cannot modify mid transaction... uggggg!

This is off-topic tho'.. maybe one for Pascal Terjan seeing as this is
kinda his field :D
