If there is no manpower to do better than this then I feel that it would
be more honest to just use volatile.

FWIW, I have been using iceweasel 3.6 since it has been uploaded and it
works *much* better than 3.5 did, which was slow and crashed a lot.

I agree : on 64bit systems Iceweasel 3.5 is way too slow, and Iceweasel 3.6 should be included in Squeeze. For Icedove 3.0, it's a beta no ? I would prefer Icedove 2.0 or Icedove 3.1 in Squeeze, but really not Icedove 3.0.

Have this packages in unstable or testing is not a huge problem, but do not release that in stable please !

Of course I'm ok to give some help to avoid that... if I can be usefull.
