Finally, it's time to get rid of contents.rdf for chrome registration, in favor of simple text manifests. This will fix a whole series of bugs relating to chrome registration and the extension manager (see dep list), as well as make authoring extensions and xulrunner apps less painful. This includes a backwards-compatibility layer so that existing extensions (and even the core apps) which use contents.rdf will not notice the change.
