Extensions are external by design, just as mydsl extensions are. There is absolutely no reason to include Firefox extensions in DSL base when 1) they are easily added by the user who wants them, 2) many are updated frequently so you'll end up downloading them anyway, and 3) they are typically directed toward a specific user base. You should never assume that what one person considers useful is going to be useful to the general public. Personally most of the applications I find most useful seem to be disliked or ignored by the general population.
Thanks struppi. If anyone finds any bugs or has suggestions for improvement (while still keeping it small and simple), post in the "mydsl info parser" thread in programming/scripting. After using it for a while, I think it needs a "download with no install" function. I often download extensions only for later use or just to look in the package.
