I don't think nspluginviewer can use much of this, unless the API also
has embedding extensions (which I didn't find).

Also v4l, are they planing for flash based chat or so?

Is this legal if KDE/Qt libs are used? My first impression is that
only code can be used that allows proprietary code to load the lib.
Only this looks a bit like a back door (ie. build
a lib in GPL with an API that happens to be used by a closed source
application, and because the proprietary site was the one defining the
API, they can't be blamed for that)
