The xpinstall-based toolkit installer can almost go. The Linux code is currently unused, and the Windows code is only used by Thunderbird and (I think?) will be ported to use the NSIS installer soon.
Thunderbird moved over, AFAICT, does this affect SeaMonkey?

I filed bug 345846, which I would hope to land on the 1.8 branch, as it makes localization easier quite a bit, in the light of new locales on 2.0.0.x, too. So the question I'd have is, does it make sense to have that bug open separately or is it a plain dupe?
Keep that open separately... I have no plans to do this on the 1.8branch, and it's relatively low priority.

This doens't affect seamonkey at the moment because they are still using the xpinstall/... installer.
This is almost everything. I didn't know who used some of the scripts in toolkit/mozapps/installer, so I didn't touch those yet.

diff -u4 2>&1 so that you can see what I removed without having to wade through the actual contents of the files.

removed by the patch in bug 349551

setup.ico is still needed and is moved to toolkit/mozapps/installer/windows/nsis by the patch in bug 349551

toolkit/mozapps/installer/windows/ can also be removed
toolkit/mozapps/installer/ can also be removed. needs to be updated for these changes

It would be nice to also remove the following from at the same time

If you like I can probably do the browser portion in about a week.

r=me but please wait on bug 349551 landing before landing this.
