That's good to know.  It's not the support of the Cocoa event model and 
CoreGraphics that appears broken, it's that the code that checks these options 
appears to be compiled out by the NP_NO_CARBON #define for 64 bit builds in 

With the current code, I don't see how any NPAPI plug-ins could work on OSX on 
64-bit builds.

CoreGraphics drawing should work". 

The combination of NPDrawingModelCoreGraphics and NPEventModelCocoa has been 
supported since Safari 4.
