Build: 6/9/99 SeaMonkey build

1. Trigger http://jimbob/jars/a_adduninstall.jar to set up package

      Install.StartInstall("Acceptance: a_adduninstall", "a_uninstall", vi, 0);
      f = Install.GetFolder("Program", "uninstall_dir");
      err = Install.AddSubcomponent(regName, vi, jarSrc, f, jarSrc, true);

2. Trigger http://jimbob/jars/a_uninstall.jar to uninstall package

      err2 = Install.Uninstall("a_uninstall");

RESULT:
a_adduninstall.jar appears to trigger successfully.  The component is installed
as expected.  The Uninstall registry appears correct.

Triggering a_uninstall.jar results in err2 = -213 (no such component).  The
Install.log indicates that the installscript aborts.  The package is not
uninstalled.  The Uninstall registry for the installed component is not removed.

EXPECTED RESULT:
Triggering a_uninstall.jar results in the package being uninstalled.  The
Uninstall registry is updated with this node removed.  The Install.log reflects
a successful uninstall.

kerz:  We'd really like this for the media player, especially since installing
the media player increases browser startup time (and new window time) quite a bit.
The OS should be changed from "Windows NT" to "All".  No matter what platform
you are using, if you can install a package you should be able to uninstall it
as well.

I'd make the change myself, but I'm not sexy enough.
Yes, this is a cross-platform bug.

(Why would media player affect new window time?)

I'm not sure if there's a method for showing the packages (about:xpi?) but that
should probably be a portion of the uninstaller.
