Yes, this is the alternative I was thinking about.
Currently this is not possible as the plugin simply starts 
a separate process trought a system() call, so in order 
to invoke NPN_GetURL we'll need a way to communicate to it.
Well, thanks for your answer, I'll concentrate on setting
this communication channel on, or get rid of the system() call
and keep a better link to the workhorse.
