Description

As discussed in the performance meeting, I'm building rickg's preloader features
into the mozilla binary.
I'm going to leverage bill law's existing -server command line option

adding dependancy
as a part of this, I needed to rework some of the CMDLINE* macros so that I
could write my own registration procedures. about to attach the patches, already
sr=sspitzer..


nominating for nsbeta1 or rtm or whatever it ends up as.

after talking with vishy, we've agreed that this isn't going to be ready in time
for nsbeta1.

The current status is that I should be able to land everything today once bill
lands his fixes to bug 75599. I have some minor updates that will load more dlls
than the initial version I checked into the trees...

Alec, how are we doing on this? and how are we integrating with Bill's mozilla 
-turbo stuff that landed?

nav triage team:

There are a bunch of -turbo bugs, wouldn't it be a better use of our time to 
focus on those issues? In other words, are we going to hold mozilla0.9.2 for 
this?
we're going to focus our resources short term on working through the -turbo mode
stuff and ironing out the details of that. hence moving the mozilla - preloader
work to m1.0. 
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.2 → mozilla1.0
