I understand, however once the plan is to have jslib preferably installed in the global chrome then
(IMHO) the simplest way is not necessarily the best.

that would be my preference.
the reason for this (as I see it) is that while some systems (Windows 9x, XP) have the main user as
administrator, Linux, MacOS X and Windows 2000 do not. Even logged in as root under Linux is no
guarantee that something installed by Mozilla is going to go into the global chrome.
just a thought.
