How could we proceed here?
So we can use "Provides", right?
Almost all plugins are made for browsers so we can probably ignore the
Firefox uuid of ec8.... and only provide the supported mimetypes and the
The prefix should probably be npapi as it the the most exact phrase for
that type of plugins.
Using the mimetype as read from a desktop file is probably not the right
I'm not sure what format is allowed/possible in virtual provides but we
have to plan for multiple mimetypes so what would be a possible format
