Something else you probably haven't thought of is timebomb code. At some magical point, you'll be releasing betas, and you'll need a way to disable the engine after a particular date and time, or relative to the first launching of Raptor. This should be implemented in an XP way.
upping the priority on this now that all of 5.0 is based on raptor.

OK... I've checked in some timebomb code into mozilla/network/module/nsNetservice.cpp which is modelled after the old "classic" timebomb code. Once, persistant preferences are working, the timebomb code can switch over to a preference rather than compiling the time into the code...
Verified that, yes, there was an XP timebomb in the beta release. ;)
