Need to compare native .DLL versions before upgrading
The Communicator code that compared native versions before upgrading a file was never ported to Mozilla -- this needs to be done so that 1) we will not accidentally downgrade a system .DLL and 2) we don't repeatedly reinstall the same version (triggering reboot requests).
This needs to get pushed out since the nsIFile stuff isn't landing until the day of the M13 freeze. Trying to squeeze this in isn't very realistic.
Setting second tier M14 priorities

This is a future enhancement.

wontfix, changing now would really mess people up (and this functionality in fact did cause problems for people in the past). Install scripts that really, really need this can do it manually using methods on the File object to check the native version of a .dll before installing over it.
