How do we use Plugin.FamilyVersionSupport ?

So I installed your Mustang (b95) and I noticed in the Registry that a new ProgID shows up at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\JavaPlugin.FamilyVersionSupport

I can get this object by using:
obj = new ActiveXObject("JavaPlugin.FamilyVersionSupport")

Now, am I correct in assuming that "obj" will have certain properties/methods that I can examine, to see the installed JRE versions?

I don't see it in your docs anywhere. You guys promised a scriptable method to easily find the installed java version. So where is it? What are the methods/properties of "obj" that I can query?

BTW, for Mustang, I have found
new ActiveXObject("JavaPlugin") to be EXTREMELY slow when Internet Explorer tries to execute, but fast for all previous Javas (1.5, 1.4, etc...). Can you fix this, guys?

TIA
