Patterned after the PHP filesystem functions, simple functions such as file read/write and directory create are supported. The code has not yet made it into the nightly build, but they expect it will get in soon.

I was wrong (although I apreciate petejc acknoledging how I *could* have been misled)
Still, in an effort to better understand this easier access to existing functionality, may ask a few more uniformed questions.
I get that this is *only* part of the inner workings of Mozilla, but as I see it, things like Chatzilla will be able to gain access, right?. (no biggie here, you essentially installing a new app, that happens to tie into Mozilla, you get what you deserve for not taking due dilegence in reading security warnings)
Now, sinse JS is diabled in Skins, what about the posibility of mini-add ons? Would we, for example, be able to add a custom button to the toolbar? (i.e. my lame "cute animal of the week" example) that has limited JS funtionality (say, normal DOM access) without full access to the "mozilla coder toolsets"?
I'm also wondering if there is a way we can access XUL files (including skins) straight off the web? Or will these things have to be downloaded/installed first?
Maaan, you stop playing with nightly builds for a while.....
