Well, for "abrowser", i doubt we'll ever see something called "abrowser"
that is not "abrowser". OTOH, "abrowser" being quite similar to
iceweasel (unbranded firefox), I don't even see why "abrowser" would end
up in Debian.
PS: I don't even understand why there is "abrowser" in Ubuntu,
especially considering it depends on firefox and not the other way
