[webkit-dev] Notifying a plugin it is in the background?

Is there any way to signal to a plug-in that its current context is in  
the background, so that it could eventually reduce CPU priority to the  
content? The issue I am looking at is that some plug-ins consume a lot  
of CPU whether or not they are in foreground. In certain cases,  
usually a Flash player, I find my CPU being maxed out by player which  
is in another tab. If there was a way to reduce the effect of  
background plug-in this would be useful.
