xulrunner directory name is hard to remember

Description

The current xulrunner directory is at /usr/lib/xulrunner-1.8.0.4

This makes it hard to remember and hard to write instructions about updating / customizing the browser that won't quickly date.

If the directory were renamed xulrunner or xulrunner1.8, that would be helpful.

I don't think we should do this. The reason of the directory name is that in mozilla there can be ABI incompatibilities even between the minor versions. Updating xulrunner would be likely to break hulahop and anything depending on it (web-activity etc).
