I recently noticed that my "openwebfolder" extension causes GreaseMonkey 
to fail loading user scripts (see 

This is apparently caused by the fact that identifiers used by both 
extensions live in the same namespace, and "openwebfolder" happens to 
define a function "getContents", which is invoked by GM.

Question: am I doing something wrong, that is, is there a way to avoid 
collisions like that?
