Okay, so it's no worse with all of the xulrunner stuff pulled out, so
there's no problem with going ahead with a simplified wrapper script and
removing that dependency.

I guess I can go ahead with another upload.  I spent some time looking
at #745127, but wasn't able to make any real progress.  It's a shame,
because it's quite annoying.  (But I guess that's a different bug.)

I'll upload this week.
