           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5

Consider using NPAPI plugins to implement eventSender, layoutTestController,
etc.

Tony and I were discussing this at lunch.  This would actually provide a bunch
of benefits:

1.  Using layout tests from within Safari/Chrome/iPhone (a full running
browser).
2.  Runing many layout tests in non-WebKit browsers.
3.  Porting to a new platform no longer requires porting DRT, just adding
plugin support to WebCore.
4.  Testing plugin load performance & less teardown/state reset logic needed in
DRT.
5.  V8 and JSC do not need separate DRT implementations.
