Just a minor point:
Netscape distributes two versions of Netscape (or did as of 4.5). The
"official" one was a libc5 version. Additionally, in an unsupported
directory, they also distribute a glibc-based one, linked against 2.0.
I would expect that the libc5 one would continue working as normal, but
the glibc one might not.
As an example, this is what my Netscape 4.5 binary looks like (yes, it's
a weird install, I know):

I haven't had any problems, but then again, I haven't upgraded to
