Whoa, there's a lot of stuff in there.

So, you guys know what's going to happen next, right? Mark is
going to add some kind of extensibility model to this, and
we'll have Firefox running GM running MagicLine running a whole
host of extensions!

Seriously, this looks really cool.

Is there some generic way to solve this "style inheritance" issue?
My lame little script creates its own UI inside of a DIV, and
it seems like there's always "just one more attribute" to
override to make sure that page styles don't affect the way
that it looks.
