My understanding of this matter is that anything which depends on Gecko
should be depending on gecko-devel (at build-time) and/or gecko-libs (at
run-time). 

These virtuals are provided by both the Firefox and XULrunner packages,
and therefore should allow smoothly upgrading from the former to the
latter.
