extensions changes

XUL is so capable and so uterly non-M$, Google's activity in the FF space is fun. And of course it is always fun to look at changes made to FF post-G involvement with a conspiracy theory eye. From the latest update:

"You will be able to "point" to extensions which you are hosting elsewhere using a cross platform text format which is basically a text file with a GUID name in the extensions directory with a path to the directory where the Extension actually lives (e.g. elsewhere on a NFS home dir)"

Hmmm.... toolbar-like extensions. Nice.
