Actually, it *does* allow global extensions, but applications embedding 
libxul or using xulrunner have to initialize the extensions manager by
themselves in order to get these extensions enabled. This is something that
is, unfortunately, not very likely to change.

Note having added stuff in the chrome without extensions recently, I can't
tell you if it will be necessary to go through a registration phase, but
I think putting a chrome.manifest file alongside should be enough.

If it is not, please bug me so that we find something (which might be in 
the form of a script provided by the libxul package)
