need to identify all hard coded strings and error messages, and add StringBundle
support to them.

Resourced strings now in chrome://xpinstall/locale/xpinstall.properties which
translates to <dist>/bin/chrome/xpinstall/locale/en-US/xpisntall.properties.
Modifying this file will modify UI action text.

Install action strings as well as dialog messages have now been resourced.

Failover now implemented: if the string bundle service is not available, or
fails, or the xpinstall.properties file is not available then we will still
display messages and log install actions, but in english instead of teh locale
specific language. This is always the case for the install wizards where we
cannot get the string bundle service.

To test, just rename the xpinstall.properties file thus rendering it
inaccessible. When you start apprunner after this, XPInstall will fail to load
the .properties file but should still show messages on dialogs including the
initial confirmation dialog.
