it seems that the current installation approach should separate the installation script from the package description. This would allow users to find packages by type (skin, plug-in, etc), version (0.8.x, 0.9.x, etc,), platform (macintosh, unix, windows, etc), the script ( http://xyz/package.xpi. etc), the package filesize, the author, etc etc. If based on rdf, then it would be possible to dynamically collate a list of packages from a variety of supplier websites using the XUL tree widget
adding request for enhancement to summary and setting status to New. Module Owner will accept or mark as WontFix.

Closing out old bug. Something like this is gonna happen with the ffox extension manager, but not in this bug.
