Indeed..complicated...very very complicated.  A very different animal
than perl and cpan.

And...do we need to consider how system wide plugins will affect other
xulrunner applications besided firefox?  I'm not really up to speed on
how these things interact. I know just enough to know I'm concerned
about knowing what the answer to that question is before we do
anything with regard to system wide plugins.  I'm somewhat sure there
isn't a problem here, but I want to make sure.

If we did anything with regard to this, I don't think I could stomach
seeing any experimentation here until after f9 goes out and rawhide
reopens for general crackrock accumulation.  Even then I'd want to see
a discussion run through the much smarter than me people in fesco
and/or packaging before we did anything...if we do anything at all.
And of course the firefox maintainer(s) would need to weigh
in....again.  I need to go list spelunking to see what expert opinion
was on this in previous discussions. I'm sure there were previous
discussions at some point about this.
