Making the search engine work with or without JavaScript may well be the
best way forward.

I assume the one provided “upstream” would be a better alternative then.

Agreed, I’m about to provide this searchplugin in mozilla-noscript with
the current RC version (via experimental). I doubt iceweasel maintainers
will change their mind soon, so we’ll not have to deal with a confile
moving from one package to another any time soon, and if DuckDuckGo make
their search engine “universal”, we’ll drop this searchplugin.
