           Summary: Permit NPAPI plug-ins to see HTTP response headers
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 522+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Plug-ins
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: dmeketa at adobe.com

For several years now, we on the Flash Player team have wanted to be able to
see HTTP response headers after making a network request through the browser. 
This need is becoming ever more urgent as more of our features depend on this
ability.  For the time being, we are still an NPAPI plugin, so we can't see the
NSHTTPURLResponse object underlying a response.  On the "plugin-futures"
mailing list, which owns the evolution of the NPAPI (and of which I know at
least Maciej is a member), we agreed on a mechanism to support this: a new
"headers" member of the NPStream struct.  Opera has already implemented this,
and I have submitted a patch to Mozilla at
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=299054 .  For Safari, we have
filed rdar://problem/4994849 .  I am entering this bug so that I can attach a
WebKit patch that achieves the same thing.
