 Yes, it is supported, I just don't implemented it on beginning due to
 "time" problems. Please assign bug to you when you start to work on
 this otherwise I will take a look at weekend.

+Am adding some comments that Jackson made on email, to keep
+information on a single place:
+1. Firefox hasn't supported windowless plugins until recently.  I don't
+know exactly which version the support showed up in, but it's certainly
+not (what most people are using).  I am using a nightly build of
+the 3.0 firefox and the windowless support is there.  The 3.0 firefox
+does cause some breakage in our current plugin, but only for 1.1 stuff
+(hooking up to js events from managed code).
+2. The challenge that you mentioned, of making cairo work with a
+drawable instead of having it's own window.
+3. Obviously other events like mouse/keyboard will require some work.
+Jackson also pointed out to the bugzilla entry that tracks the feature
+in Firefox:
