I think this should be easy to implement and would save us some time since we end up accepting add-ons with this minor defect. It'd be best if developers know right away and then fix the add-on before uploading.

This should be a Warning. It should appear when the XPI has a file or folder beginning with '.', or a folder named '__MACOSX'. This should cover the majority of cases.

The message should be something like:

"Hidden files and folders difficult the review process and can contain sensitive information about the system that generated the XPI. Please modify the packaging process so that these files aren't included."

We've already got messages for both of those cases. I'll convert it to a warning if it isn't already.
