Reinstall goes to suffixed directory #1515

Install a script named foo; it will go inside a directory named "foo" inside gm_scripts. Reinstall it. It will go to "foo-1". After install, the old copy is uninstalled. A second reinstall will thus go to "foo", and repeat. Ideally re-installing the same script would keep the same install location.

A related problem: reinstall a script, then go to the Add-ons Manager, right-click the script name and select Edit. The script can't be loaded, because it's still looking for it in the previous directory.

It works OK after Firefox is restarted.

@arantius arantius Do GM_config.install() _before_ putting a RemoteScript's files in place.
This cleans the old script's files out first, so the names on disk do not collide.

Fixes: #1515, #1520
