My "enhanced" builds package a few extra files. As the recent problem reported by John Clemente in the newsgroup shows, it is necessary to add them to the installer, so that they get removed before an upgrade. Otherwise they might give problems and SeaMonkey might not even start any more.

The problematic files are:

I also package (or at some point packaged)
The 07 variant should be removed, too, as RWS 0.7 isn't supported any more, but those of v0.8 we should still leave.

components/ipluginw.{dll,readme} is shipped with my builds, too. But that doesn't seem to cause any problems and it might be annoying to users to remove it.

I'll make a patch some time before the next SM release.

OK, so this removes most RWS support files. I think we should leave the up-to-date RWS*08* files there in case the user placed them there on purpose. rwsos2.xpt isn't shipped any more with my PmW-* builds but I think at one time it was.
