I just tried the new jslib uninstall on Windows and everything works 
perfectly. The only thing is the jar will remain undeleted due to the 
fact that if the jar is cached in memory, the filehandle remains open 
even though we closed all the windows.

I think the solution is using nsIZIpReaderCache to get the nsIZipReader 
for the jar and then calling close() on the target mypackage.jar file.

I'll try it out. This one file deletion is only an issue on windows.
