The recent push of xulrunner-1.9 and Firefox 3 broke Miro and devhelp
(https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F9/pending/devhelp-0.19.1-2.fc9)
again.

Is there a way to declare these kinds of dependencies that we are not
using right now? Should Miro and devhelp specifically require xulrunner
= %{version}-%{release} -- or perhaps a more administrative solution;
block a non-security release of xulrunner for at least one day and
automatically notify the maintainers of its dependents?

xulrunner was suppose to stop this from happening with a stable api.

XULRunner provides both a stable and unstable API. Things aren't going to magically be fixed until the applications actually start *using* the stable API.
