One of the specifics is: is there a separate process for each object/document controlled by a given plug-in, or are all objects controlled by that plug-in in the same extra process, or is it a mix?

WebKit has had the ability to run plugins out of process on the mac for quite some time.  We recently reimplemented a bunch of that functionality to share infrastructure with WebKit's general out-of-process strategy, and that code can be found http://trac.webkit.org/browser/trunk/Source/WebKit2/PluginProcess.  What specifics are you interested in?

Sorry if this is the wrong forum.

Is WebKit adding the capability to load plug-ins out-of-process on the mac?

If so, would this forum be the right one for questions about how this is done, and technical specifics about it?  If not, where?
