Well nobody has said the most important part of this: what are the compile-time 
dependencies for this plugin?
If some mozilla source code is needed, or the thing is tied to a changing mozilla protocol,
then extragear is the only solution, due to the relation to mozilla releases.
But if Qt provides everything that's needed, then kdeaddons is fine, assuming a configure check 
disables the plugin from compilation with qnsplugins isn't available (doesn't qnsplugin
need downloading some Netscape SDK first?)
