Yes, that would be one way to do it.
I'll go away and see if I can compile and use npshell.c (the mozillia
sample unix plugin code), if that
works then we might be able to use more of the unix stuff, otherwise
lots of effort to convert to a
seperate process model.
Also have the issue that the code isn't usable for the existing browser
base (Internet Explorer) on os-9 or os-x.
Mmm one could try Apple's os9 MP thread logic, that maps to pthreads,
but again a bit of thinking.
