I hacked together a prototype ad-blocking extension and it seems there are still some game stopping bugs.

For instance, the content filtering interface one would use is severely limited in syntax compared to what the firefox extension does. If you try to use the wildcard that SHOULD match everything, it doesn't. So it'll be a couple more releases at least before this interface is usable for adblock.
