Add support for a PLUGINURL attribute for the EMBED tag which is an URL that points to an executable or possibly an XPInstall package in the future. When no plugin is found but a PLUGINURL attribute is found, we should: 1) Download the executable pointed to by this URL. Show status 2) Give the user a warning about executing untrusted code 3) Execute code or invoke XPInstall The Default Plugin should also skip the step of finding the correct plugin but instead go directly the reload message..ie "Click here after installing"

The PLUGINSURL and PLUGINPAGE attributes are already supported by the "Default Plugin" (plugin downloader plugin). It already works pretty well but may still need some minor cosmetic changes.
If anyone wants to see how this works currently, I have some screen shots visible at: http://retro/users/peterlubczynski/publish/pluginDemo2/demo.htm or http://panther/pluginDemo2/demo.htm
Depends on: 46405
Since support is already there, marking INVALID.
