Enabling a Safari plugin via Policy?

I'm trying to enable a specific plugin in Safari (flash player), but I'm assuming I would need to do so with a command of some sort. I can't find any command line options detailed for Safari that would let me do this. Anyone know how this can be accomplished on a large scale?

@bentoms Thanks for that... your Google-fu is better than mine! Now the only problem is I don't understand the example config. I get where it's setting the preferences that it wants, but then I don't understand all the other stuff that happens at the end of the file. Pretty much all of this is greek to me, and not explained on that page:
