I just build my own XR, then write up some dummy wrappers to hook
inspector and venkman in as profile extensions.  (Of course, this
needs the inspector and venkman modules actually living, and that's
partly why I build my own.)  Inspector and venkman are easier to get
to work because they mainly live in their own windows.

Mostly involves copying some overlays and making sure they hook into
your app too.

At the very least, inspector on CZ on XULRunner works :)  And I think
I had venkman working in an app at some point.
