Windows/Linux Profile import

Ok, so my idea was, if it were possible, to make an engine that checked if the profile we import in a different operating system, has any conflicting extensions. There are several extensions that when outdated can't/shouldn't be installed on the new profile, and some are only useable on Linux, or on Windows.

It has happened to me before that importing a profile, it'd import extensions/definitions that cannot be used in the operating system/firefox version.

Thanks for your time,
Ed

Yes, that would be a good idea. But, believe it or not, there is nothing within an extension's install.rdf that declares which operating systems the extension is compatible with. AMO knows which OS's are supported because the developer notes this when uploading the extension.
