freshplayerplugin (Chrome Flash for Firefox) in Gentoo betagarden, uses uriparser

A live ebuild is now available in the "betagarden" overlay. Users of non-stable Chrome can edit the plug-in path in /etc/freshwrapper.conf. Interestingly, freshplayerplugin makes use of my library uriparser for URI handling. Very nice!
