 Ah, I just wanted to revert all my changes related to the
 flashplugin removal first.  As of the removal, www/linuxpluginwrapper
 still depended on www/linux-flashplugin6.

 I also think it is good to remove this because of the security flaw,
 but is it true that in such cases we need to set DEPRECATED and
 EXPIRATION_DATE in advance?  Or, is it no problem with removing
 it immediately?
