I'm basically in agreement with Johannes here. I think we're better
served getting a latter firefox in than earlier, translations be
damned :) I'm basically going to upload 0.10.1-1.0PR1 to unstable
unless someone come up with compelling reasons not to. If I can't get
it into sarge then I will certainly make a 0.9.3 release to address
it's issues.
