I just keep on referring to Firefox, sorry :)

FF does not ship with sample extensions, but has basically the same
architecture Andi has proposed. Also, FF extensions are packed as jar
archives (really a zip inside a zip). Yet developers find it easy to
write extensions to Firefox. I still don't see why we would need to be
any different.

The plugin proposal will actually buy us a little performance, and it
does not seem like that much of work.

So it still has my +1 :)
