Well, currently extensions cannot be installed in a per-user directory.
That could be changed.

Right now I don't see the need to implement such a feature in Thunar.
Xfce 4.4 will include a much improved InstallIt, which will be able to
do this (and much more), so why duplicate the functionality in the file
