Recently the plugin was refactored to remove the platform dependencies from the common code. The exception was Mac OS X, where we are working around problems in WebKit.

The NPAPIJavaPlugin and MacNPAPIJavaPlugin classes should be refactored so that the conditional compilation for XP_MACOSX in the base class isn't needed.

EVALUATION Moved check for buggy WebKit version into Mac-specific overrides, and introduced new method for async handling so we can handle the dispose case properly.
