So this is great and all, but it's FF specific, where we're moving to
xulrunner anyway.  Time is better spent getting these things to support
xul.

F8 will still be around for about 12 months, which IMHO is more then
enough a reason to warrant one or two of work. Especially as it safes
the maintainers of the packages some work, so in the end less work for
everybody.

BTW, does xulrunner properly and for real solve the problem? The current
rawhide package just as firefox has a path with a version number in it
(/usr/lib64/xulrunner-1.9a9pre/) so I fear that there sill will be
packages taht depend on a particular xulrunner version. Or is there some
abstraction somewhere to make sure packages don't depend on a particular
version of xulrunner?

I also don't understand. I thought the whole point of having xulrunner was precisely so we can package it properly using a more classic dynamic libraries versioning scheme...
