You can list out the contents of the .xpi archive (even before unzipping it). In 
UNIX, do an "unzip -v". It would be useful seeing the .xpi contents (or .jar or 
.zip for chrome installs) *before* the install actually occurred.

One possibility is a list viewer in the "Confirm" dialog. All the files with 
their names, time stamps, and sizes could be listed. (and as more advanced 
features, some indication where it would be downloaded, and the ability to 
choose which files to download! ;)

Removing "download" from the summary -- we have to download to get this info,
but we should allow confirmation before committing the install.

The xpinstall script engine has been removed from the trunk, bugs in it are obsolete.
