See http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/components/signed-scripts.html -- 
this talks about putting an entire webpage in a signed JAR, but the jar: 
protocol works for any ZIP/JAR file, signed or not, in Mozilla.

It's not a performance winner quite yet due to the way caching of the jar file 
is (not) done, but we're hoping to fix that...
