[LibX] directly addressing old revisions of LibX

Melissa asked how to access previous LibX IE builds. Older builds of
IE are still reachable if you specify the revision in the URL.

LibX revisions use a simple URL scheme. The revision URLs are formed as follows:

Old style edition ids:
libx.org/editions/mu/  - Live revision prefix
libx.org/editions/mu.1/ - Revision 1 prefix
libx.org/editions/mu.2/ - Revision 2 prefix

For new style ids, it's
libx.org/editions/01/23/01234567 -  Live revision prefix
libx.org/editions/01/23/01234567.1 -  Revision 1 prefix
libx.org/editions/01/23/01234567.2 -  Revision 2 prefix

The prefix refers to a directory on our server.  Append config.xml to
get the config file. Append libx-editionid.xpi to get the FF .xpi
file, and append libx-editionid.exe to get the IE build.

So for instance, http://libx.org/editions/mu.7/libx-mu.exe refers to
the downloadable IE build for edition mu, revision 7.
