You're right, that's the problem. But I don't think that the quicksearch 
rewrite should hold up anything; IMO we can afford to require admins who 
want quicksearch to work on their installation to manually update their
localconfig.js . Of course, it would be nice if someone with perl 
knowledge could review the patch at http://mozilla.flowerday.cx ,
see bug 70907 comment #27 and #28 . The code has been there for quite 
a while. Since it's not an attachment, I'm not sure how to
request review for it with the request tracker... ;-)

Great to see the planning for 2.18.
