I investigated how we can get the value from plugins on Safari mac port.

On MacOS 10.6, plugins are handled by the separate process (WebKitPluginAgent) and we cannot call NPP_GetValue() directory. I found the MIG specification file for the IPC (WebKitPluginHost.defs) but it seems that there is no interface to call plugin functions such as NPP_GetValue. AFAIK, the WebKitPluginAgent is not a part of WebKit so we cannot add this feature on MacOS 10.6 as long as the WebKitPluginAgent doesn't provide a way to call NPP_GetValue().

On MacOS 10.5 (or earlier, I'm not sure because I don't have any machine earlier than 10.5), plugins are handled by the WebNetscapePluginView class so I think we can implement this feature by adding a method that calls NPP_GetValue in the class. I'm going to implement this before long.
