Yes, something like:

multibar {
   -moz-binding: url("chrome://[chromename/path]/multibar.xml#multibar")

Ever looked at Mozilla Firefox? There are still plenty of bugs in 
Mozilla Firefox itself, and they will all end up in Netscape as well.

The review process sucks, as some developers simply duplicate methods, 
and the code isn't always what it is supposed to be. I even recently 
prevented a patch to go in with a bug, but they didn't even mentioned it 
so thanks but no thanks to these suckers!
