Details

when calling xpinstall apis within xpinstall context, we need to start with
Install., such as Install.StartInstall().

It would be nice to simplify our api calls, and make them work without
"Install."

Looks fine.  New install scripts are using "new" form.
should we remove the "Install." methods?
The plan is to leave the old "Install." in, untill after the beta, so QA has
time to convert all their test cases.
Unless, of course, if Jimmy is happy with changing it right away??  Jimmy?
Let's not make any changes until after Beta.

Personally, I'd like to see "Install." stay, so I don't ever have to edit any
scripts.  If there is a reason it has to go, then so be it.  I'll listen to lots
of music ;-)
I don't think we need to excise "Install." -- this bug was about making it work
w/out that, but we don't need to get rid of the other way.

Anyway, if we want to get rid of "Install." then that would be a new bug.
