Nice work, I just happened to look at the FreeBSD plugin status and have
a question there which you might be able to answer easily:

The plugin registration fails, the plugin is listed in mozilla's about
page, but without the mime type, description, suffix, enabled field. The
/tmp/plugin_log however shows that the proper registration functions
were called:

--> Unixshell::(0x809eb00) NPP_GetMIMEDescription
--> Unixshell::(0x809eb00) NPP_GetValue
--> Unixshell::(0x809eb00) NPP_GetValue::NPPVpluginNameString
--> Unixshell::(0x809eb00) NPP_GetValue
--> Unixshell::(0x809eb00) NPP_GetValue::NPPVpluginDescriptionString

This comes from GamePlayer/netscape/src/UnixShell.c

Do you have any idea what might be wrong ?
