In order to be able to implement WeaveCrypto in a ChromeWorker, we need atob and btoa available in ChromeWorkers.

Attached patch Patch, v1Splinter Review
This consolidates our other two uses of atob/btoa and moves everything to nsXPConnect. Has tests too.

I've written a new article, "Functions available to workers", that lists these and other functions workers can use. Please take a look:
