Hi Pete,

The problem is, I'm trying to do it in a xul file - not from JS. In my 
overlay xul file, I want to specify that this new column goes after the 
existing columns in the grid. For menu items, this would be 
straightforward - <menuitem id="foo" insertafter="bar">..</menuitem>, 
but for <column>, this doesn't seem to work.



This is a signature.
