Bug#558490: putting xul extension config files in /etc

hey folks--

#558490 suggests that mozilla-devscripts should automatically put
extension-specific preferences files someplace in /etc, and link back to
them from the unpacked tree.

I think this is a good idea, and i think it should be spelled out
specifically in https://wiki.debian.org/Mozilla/ExtensionsPolicy

I've just modified the policy draft to include a new "Config Files"
section stating this idea, roughly.  I'd appreciate feedback and edits
from any interested parties.

In particular, i wonder if we should recommend particular placement of
the config files.  at the moment, many extensions seem to use
/etc/mozilla-extensions/foo.js (which seems a little at odds to our
current xul-ext- naming scheme).  Is there a better choice?

As an admin, where would you look for the default configuration files of
your xul-ext packages?
