jquery script modification question

I'm working on a wordpress site that's running a plugin that uses a purpose built jquery script stored in the plugin folder.  This means that when the plugin is updated any edits I make to that script will be overriden.

Basically its a form field validation script and I want to add a few lines to it.

How can I override the plugin script with a new one that will survive plugin updates?..

I was thinking of creating a new script to include the old stuff and my changes and registering it & enqueueing properly from functions.php

before I do I thought I'd check with the experts to see if there is a well known solution that works better.

thanks

The danger you have in doing that is that an update the original might be to remain compatible with new releases of other components.  Your custom version; lacking those updates may break as a result, or break something else.  You also need to consider that some updates are to fix security holes and you could be left exposed.

So you just need to proceed with caution knowing that you might need to patch your version in the future.
