The Linux installer already has a cancel button in the bottom left corner.  With
the new download UI and pause/resume support you will be able to cancel even in
the middle of download.  You can't cancel during the install phase because the
XPInstall engine is not equipped with a callback mechanism.  If you are
referring to a cancel button during the install phase then we need to open a new
bug for adding a callback mechanism to the XPInstall engine and new bugs for the
win32 and mac installers to take advantage of this.

Changed from Linux to all since it behaves the same way on all platforms, and
marked it as an Engine bug.

I think that this is really a request for an enhancement.  It will involve a
very significant amount of design and implementation, if it is practical to do
it at all.  How should we track these kinds of issues?  Should they be marked as
Severity=enhancement?  or just tracked through the PRD? or some other mechanism?
