What about using something like "xultools"?

On a side note, I am still looking for a XUL/XBL written interface 
that's capable of adding/removing XUL/XML/CSS/JS/RDF/JAR files to 
JAR/XPI files.

Something like InfoZip, but without bugs, and with support for scripts 
to do some tasks, fully automatically, with a single click/keystroke.
