Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

Using noscript with iceweasel's search provider set to a search engine
that really wants you to use javascript is a drag.

The DuckDuckGo search engine has a nice non-javascript interface, but
it is not available by default.

If xul-ext-noscript were to ship the attached file as

then users of noscript would have a DuckDuckGoNoJS search provider
made available automatically, which they could select.  This would be
a nice integration touch.

thanks for maintaining noscript in debian!
