Get rid of contents.rdf chrome registration nightmare
Checkin of the weekend. Actually it got backed out again, but hopefully it get's checked in again soon.
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.
