At Chris Waterson's request I'm filing this bug. In bug 97380, I found it necessary to introduce a PRUnichar * version of nsIPluginInstanceOwner::ShowStatus(). Waterson feels we should remove the char * version.
It should be noted that the java plugin uses nsIPluginInstancePeer::ShowStatus (char *) so in any case that method can't be changed in nsIPluginInstancePeer.
Can this interface change or is it frozen?
Bugs targeted at mozilla1.0 without the mozilla1.0 keyword moved to mozilla1.0.1 (you can query for this string to delete spam or retrieve the list of bugs I've moved)
--->WONTFIX The plugins triage team (beppe, av, peterl, serge) have determined: We should not remove this call because it appears the Java plugin is using it as stated in comment #2 and it's also possible a rough plugin is using it.
marking verif, pls reopen stating a reason, Thx!
