I'm wondering whether I should start investigating alternative Javascript
libraries, given Mozilla's (apparent) reluctance to install libmozjs as
anything other than a private library for use by xulrunner-using apps.

That said, if anybody is prepared to take the Ubuntu workaround for this in
their gxine package and make that suitable for upstream, I'll take that
instead. I did try to push for something which is acceptable for upstream,
but no, distribution-specific workaround...

(I suppose that I could create a Ubuntu-based chroot, but I'd rather avoid
