Opera would like to make the config file in widgets packages
mandatory. Our rationale is that having at least one  config.xml file
at the root of the widget give a sure way to identify a zip archive as
a widget; otherwise arbitrary zip packages with an index.html could be
fed to a widget engine and would run with the security privileges of a
widget.

Kind regards,
Marcos
