UNR's UIs are a dead-end. I'd advise sticking to Moblin, even if we made
slight changes compared to upstream (using mutter for both gnome-shell
and moblin usage would be good).

What's the use of this?

Is there any actual way to package Firefox extensions for Fedora? That
would probably make my installs of Firebug more up-to-date...

But making sure that applications work well on smaller screens is a case
for either adding support directly in the applications when possible, or
creating a proper front-end for it.

A number of those are already in Fedora, a few more are up for review,
but things like maximus are gross hacks, and we shouldn't be building a
desktop on top of hacks like that.
