    You can write plugins, but you can't use (test) them and I don't think you can package them in .crx packages for easy distribution either.
    Basically you can write the code and send it to someone, but it's pretty useless to anyone without the dev version.

    You can make NPAPI Plugins for older versions of Chrome I believe.
    Though you need a --load-plugin="C:\path\to\extension.dll" on the command line I think.

    If they use the tabs or any other API I think most of them will need to use permissions, and if I'm not mistaken if you use a version prior to 4 you will get an error.
