I have added the ability to add updateHash for sha256 to update.rdf in my mccoy extension.  That bit works, but the resulting update.rdf is not usable, by firefox.

I'm not sure where Comment #1 came from, but the extension to mccoy works and the update.rdf is usable by Firefox now. The xpis from use my extension.

I suspect the extension will only work for simple update.rdf files.

The xpis from also use this extension:

I found the tricky bit was getting the file:// urls given on the command-line right.

Here is an example command line that signs and adds <updateHash> to update.rdf under cygwin: 

mccoy.exe \
-sign file:///c:/cygwin/home/leni/wrk/xpi/update.rdf \
-key mccoy-xpi-updatekey \
-addOnFileName file:///c:/cygwin/home/leni/wrk/xpi/zindus-0.7.6-tb.xpi 

Notes for if you have problems:
- the file:// url for update.rdf given on the command line is passed to:
- this rdf tutorial notes that GetDataSourceBlocking requires absolute
  (not relative) URLs:
- you may find the error checking in the current release thin and the
  failure mode not enormously helpful when the file:// url isn't
  100% correct.
- but mccoy is a XULrunner application, so it's easily debugged,
