Coming from a debian.org address I should hope not... I have no problem
building my own packages. I've been building them for months now. I was
half-way through building mozilla 0.8 when I discovered it had been
NMU'd. What bothers me is that the lack of an official *recent* mozilla
package is raising the bar to participation in galeon development too
high. It's one thing to download a 1Mb source archive that builds in 10
minutes. It's another to download 30Mb of source needing 500MB free
space to compile and discover 3 hours later that the bloody makefiles
are broken.

The suggestion that this needs a lawyer to fix is a joke. The non-US
archive is there for a reason.
