Wait.. By freeing Communicator, they /can/ corner the market, because we
know the best multiplatform browser is Netscape, and not Internet

This bold new marketing strategy perhaps is geared towards getting people
to buy "netscape" style plugins, etc.. If they release the source, it
means they have to maintain Netscape little, we'll do all the work for
them, so they can cut their staff down 50%.

Soon as the source comes out, I'll make a Debian 1.3 package out of it..
hopefully it can be chucked in the contrib section?
