#1 Cross-platform Sash-XB much more interesting

Sash-XB looks to be a very useful platform, for a Linux-only target. Likewise, Sash looks good for a Win32-only target. However, neither is particularly compelling, due to the fact that they are limited to single platforms.

Porting Sash-XB to all the platforms supported by Mozilla seems like a natural development, and would make Sash-XB a very interesting platform.
