Coming this late in the "browser extension match", I would (if I were Opera of course) reuse FF's whole system and, if I have any added value, extend it. I guess the extension system itself has extension points...

I wonder if they can. AFAIK, a lot of FF's former performance issues came from the fact that a large part of the browser was written in interpreted code (XUL) so that it's easier to extend it using that language.
