It seems I should have read the bug backlog...

The GNOME browser *is* Epiphany. Epiphany has its own user experience, and
is different from Firefox. And it's even going to be even more different
than Firefox in lenny+1, since Epiphany is definetely switching to
webkit, as well as most (all?) gnome applications currently using gecko.
This means that while Epiphany and Iceweasel are 99.9% the same today
and in Lenny, they won't in Lenny+1. It is *not* a good idea to not have
epiphany as the gnome browser in Lenny.
