Anyways, wouldn't it be wiser to just rename the source package to
ubiquity-extension for future proofing? Right now having the Ubiquity
installer in Debian doesn't make much sense, but who knows. The
Ubiquity installer actually predates the Mozilla project too. Renaming
packages after they get into Debian is much more work.
