To Run:

From a shell type the following commands:

# run the fast_component creation script
# without any arguments to see the help menu
$ sh;

# to creat a new project in mozilla/extensions called 'spiderman'
$ sh spiderman;

# to compile your new project 'spiderman'
$ sh -c spiderman;

# to test your new project 'spiderman'
$ sh -t spiderman;

# it's that easy!
