Currently, the way that embed.jar gets built is not very flexible, and uses a pre-made installed-chrome.txt. If an embeddor wants to add or remove things from this jar, it's difficult. About a year ago, Pink did some nice work for the MacPerl driven Mac build. You could specify which parts of the chrome you wanted in your build prefs and then, depending on what chrome was packaged, an installed chrome.txt was dynamically generated. We need to have this nicety in the unified gmake world. Once it is flexible enough, we could have a nice README in embedding/config which gave examples of how to add/remove chrome from the jar. BTW - can we get an "Embedding: Packaging" bugzilla component?
Moving to new bugzilla component.
