Agreed, and in the meantime it should/can be dropped.  For one thing
it opens up a DoS attack on your browser should you install the

If anyone has a good idea about how to write Gtk-using plugins for

trying different things, there is next-to-no documentation, and
everything I tried failed to work in a variety of different ways.
