Hi Scott, Not a bad idea at all, and thanks for the feedback! I think exe-thumbnailer alone would work as a name since it isn't DE-specific, and IIRC this is also the name Wine docs use to refer to the project. What do you think?
The only caveat is that renaming a package in Debian means it needs to go through NEW, so it might take a while for the update to be processed.
