Well, given the amount of nice new features of deerkpark (and bugfixes),
I couldn't resist and I gave it a shot and I'm very happy to report that
after an entire day of painful debugging, I have PB running on Deer Park
alpha 2 and attached there is a screenshot to prove it.


It's not yet committed because I now have to figure out how to make the
the xpi installable both on Firefox and on Deer Park (I really don't
want to maintain two differenc branches)

Note for DavidH: remember the symlink capacity that I had on mac and you
didn't on windows? no more. Deerpark allows you to write a file with the
{uuid} as the name in the /extensions directory and in the file, the
path name of where the extension folder is located, so it's enough that
you point.

Expect more on this RSN.
