[Project_owners] Installing a searchplugin (Firefox 1.0.x)

I'm installing a searchplugin with my extension. In 1.5 builds, you just 
slot it into searchplugins/ in the XPI, and Firefox automagically looks 
after the rest.

In 1.0.x builds, plugins are not picked up in extensions.

So my current way around this is on first startup to move the files to 
the app searchplugins/ folder. The problem with this is that it requires 
another restart for the plugin to appear.

Does anyone know a solution for the plugin to appear on first startup of 
Firefox after your extension is installed?
