Description

Bug 567642 made it possible for code to access the harness service using the JID whether it is bundled or being run via the |cfx run| command, but it still can't necessarily access the harness service using |cfx test|, because the contract ID of the harness service is hardcoded for that command.

We should fix that.  In bug 567642, comment 13, referring to that bug's fix for |cfx run|, Nickolay points out:

> The fix similar to above for 'test' would sprinkle 'id' properties over all
> package.json files, even those that are module-packages, not program-packages.
>
>Perhaps we should generate the ID only if there's an invalid ID field or the
>user's running 'cfx xpi' (and maybe 'cfx run', not sure)? If there's no ID,
>default to a constant in the harness contract ID."

The Add-on SDK is no longer a Mozilla Labs experiment and has become a big enough project to warrant its own Bugzilla product, so the "Add-on SDK" product has been created for it, and I am moving its bugs to that product.

To filter bugmail related to this change, filter on the word "looptid".

This doesn't seem to have mattered; let's reopen/refile if necessary in the future.

This was actually fixed for cases I cared about in bug 626059 -- if you specify an id in package.json, you can use it to get the harness service.
