The way I understand it is that you _do_ need contents.rdf in your
/contents /locale /skin (top level) directories. The current state of
xpi installs seems to be a real mess, you need to have a mix of old and
new if you want your extension to work across mozilla(suite, ff-1.0.x,
deerpark) distro's. There used to be one well defined method. Now there
are two. The new simpler method requires much more work and seems to
much more complicated.
