No.  That's why you have virtual packages.  Just like every program
that depends on a java2-runtime doesn't have multiple versions.

I think that a very large part of mozilla is probably just the
"libraries" and you'd still have a great deal of duplication.
The mozilla or firefox binary is probably only a very thin wrapper
around the libraries; that's what iexplore.exe is.
