The addition of a one click .xpi export function would be a huge improvement.
1)need to go into install.rdf editor, click Using export wizard; need menubar button or Project menuitem.
2)requires strict source folder; cannot have fully qualified location, or simply project root (unhandled exception thrown). shared projects do not always have a src/ structure which contains all files.
3)does not remember previously checked folders/files, or even file types, very repetitive. there are many files which need to be excluded (.hg or .project or .settings etc).
An even more impressive feature would be to also 'install' the new .xpi files in the proper mozilla profile extension folder. So one click to build the .xpi and copy files into the selected profile, and another to restart Fx and have the new extension available.
