[webkit-dev] Plugins with no MIME type

Hey guys,

I'm just starting out writing a WebKit plugin which will intercept  
HTTP requests and responses and manipulate them in various ways. I'm a  
bit unsure as to how to go about getting this sort of plugin to load,  
as it doesn't handle a specific MIME type. The movie player example is  
obvious - the MIME type of the object is specified in the sample HTML  
code, the plugin is found for that MIME type, and its - 
webPluginInitialize and -webPluginStart methods are called as  
expected. Is there something I need to put in my Info.plist for this  
plugin to be loaded without being associated with a specific MIME  
type? I hope this isn't a silly question, but I've been unable to find  
the info I need in the doco.
