Bug#695333: totem-mozilla: Rename package to "browser-plugin-totem" (and other nit-picks)

Package: totem-mozilla
Version: 3.6.3-1
Severity: wishlist


in consistency with many other packages in Debian that provide plugins for
mozilla-compatible browsers, please consider renaming the "totem-mozilla"
package to "browser-plugin-totem".

Furthermore, it would be really helpful if the extended package description
could briefly elaborate what kind of plugins the package is all about.
Something like:
"This package contains browser plugins that are compatible to:
 * Shockwave Flash (vegas)
 * DivX® Web Player (mully)
 * VLC Multimedia Plugin (cone)
 * QuickTime Plug-in (narrowspace)
 * Windows Media Player Plug-in 10 (gmp)
Please note that I deliberately mentioned the totem-internal names of the
plugins to help understand what files are actually installed.

Last but not least, I think it should be seriously considered to ship the vegas
plugin at all. I have not yet found a web site on which it worked properly and
it is currently in the way of better working alternatives. Maybe the "browser-
plugin-gnash" package should get recommended instead, but that's already the
topic of #673667.
