Needs to be either ported to xulrunner 2.0, or drop it's dependency on xulrunner entirely

Bug Description

We want to drop xulrunner-1.9.2 from the archive (to try and avoid having to support 2 different versions), but google-gadgets is depending quite heavily on the current version.

I made a start to port it (and also adding proper JS_BeginRequest/JS_EndRequest guarding around code which touches a JSContext as this is enforced when running against debug builds of Spidermonkey, which I've been doing to investigate problems I'm having).

However, this still isn't working and I've already invested way too much of my time on this. Somebody else needs to pick this up, else we'll drop it from the archive. This seems pretty dead upstream anyway, and I expect we'll get frequent changes to jsapi nearly every cycle now, which is going to make supporting this a significant amount of work.

Here's what I started. It builds fine, but crashes inside JS_InitClass on a non-debug build of spidermonkey
