Win32 WebKit-r34578

Unlike the Netscape WMP 6.4 plugin from <http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=99655624-ca38-49b7-a701-93f5f0e501dd&displaylang=en>, the Firefox WMP plugin from <http://port25.technet.com/pages/windows-media-player-firefox-plugin-download.aspx> doesn't need Javascript to work.

For example, the following works in Firefox with Javascript turned off.

<object type="application/x-ms-wmp" width="300" height="300">
    <param name="URL" value="file.mp3">

However, in Webkit, if you turn JS off, you get a dead plugin window. This should not happen and Javascript should not be required for all types the FF WMP plugin says it supports.

One possible solution: When loading np-mswmp.dll (or whatever it might be named as), check the description and supported mime types to see that you really have the Firefox WMP plugin. If so, set a js_not_required flag or something. That way, you can still require JS for the old plugin and not require JS for the new one.
