Of course Safari does not provide such a thing, but I had the impression that
it could be a plug-in that provides it, not Safari itself.

I guess I didn't realize this was a Chrome-specific experiment. If so, then I
think the ifdefs were done wrong, because the hook was included in all WebKit
browsers, not just Chrome. I guess it was included in the non-Chrome versions
of WebKit for no good reason, and there's a good chance nobody tried to use
this hook on other platforms, so it's probably OK to take it out.
