Consider storing preferences in Text
Serializer in profile\chatzilla\prefs .txt
Pros: - We can fix long-standing issues like bug 363020. - Storing of Arrays can be offloaded from PrefManager to TextSerializer. - All of ChatZilla's data is in profile\chatzilla, which can just be moved/copied easily. Cons: - Without some fiddling, we lose the alleged write-safety of prefs.js. - We're "being different", finding preferences is harder and about:config is useless to us/our users. I'd like to try this at least as a test, to see what's involved. I think it is worth considering seriously, though, as it makes sense for portability.
