Details

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.
