Are you 100% sure this can work? When I looked at this, I was under the
impression that the plugin exports some C++ symbols which firefox would
then try to use. The issue with that is that firefox on windows is built
with visual c++, and mingw (at least on linux) and visual c++ don't use the
same name mangling for c++ symbols. Because of that, I assumed such an
approach (mingw/linux build of spice-xpi) wouldn't work.
Do you know more about this, and can you confirm that I'm wrong? I'd be
very happy if building a Windows spice-xpi plugin was workable.

Maybe FF does see it thanks to some data file being shipped by spice-xpi?
install.rdf comes to mind?
I hope it's possible to get all of this to work ;)
