Huh, firefox is a new version of firebird and phoenix, not? So why not
conflict the old ones away? Only thing is downgrades won't work because
the old firebird/phoenix packages don't rename back, but that's

And smooth upgrades maybe by having dummy packages for firebird that
simply depend firefox?

But, I don't know much about this {phoenix,fire{bird,fox}}-stuff, so if
I hit the nail completely wrong, ignore me :)
