How's the percolation going? ;-)

I looked at the implementation details.
Note: this is just a prototype, I don't think we'd want to keep a
GM_getRawScript function.

GM_getRawScript (in browser.xul in the "injectScript" function) below
shows how to get the raw content of the script, the same way that GM
does for injecting it into the page (so it won't break even if GM
changes the way it injects the script into the page).
            win.GM_log (...)
            win.GM_getRawScript = function() {
              return getContents(getScriptChrome(script.filename));

Combining this code with a simple extraction of literal strings (as
shown in samples in this thread) would make it easy to write a

So it's just a matter of deciding:
- if we want this kind of support for literal string in GM,
- what specific format to use (do we want to offer an escape sequence
for /* and */ in the literal strings?).

Let me know and I can get a patch ready,
