In looking at the patch for bug referenced by Gustavo
also noticed this method.
What happens for other embedded object types? Is it also worth
considering a callback signal to allow embedded applications to embed
arbitrary application controls? Does WebKit already have a mechanism
for doing this?
I see an ObjectContentOtherPlugin type, but I think based on the way the
browser needs to sandbox plugins, that it wouldn't necessarily work to
do what I wanted.
It seems like you could define a signal that was only emitted if an
unknown object type was requested (based on appropriate security policy
configurations). This would probably be the best compromise.
Without it, I don't see how you can easily mix complex native widgets
with XHTML content. I think there's some great advantages to using
XHTML+CSS for layout, and that's the kind of thing I think of with some
of the talk about using using WebKit for hybrid applications.
I couldn't really find this covered anywhere else.
Thanks in advance,
