Yeah, I think I'm mistaken.  (Mark it on your calendar; that's my
quota for the week.)  I think the 'libnullplugin' is the bastard
that pops up those damn boxes asking you to download the Flash
player.  I'd be surprised, though, if someone hasn't written a
true null plugin that just ignores unknown MIME times (at least,
on a per-entry basis).

The public demands certainties;  it must be told definitely and a bit
raucously that this is true and that is false.  But there are no certainties.
