That's a really good idea.  I'm not sure, but it looks from previous
messages like you've been communicating with Mozilla Project people
about this.  Can you get some of them to agree that these are not
confusingly similar names, to be very clear that they're not likely to
complain later?

I don't want to negotiate on the names (again) unless we find a solution that has the backup from debian, from the current package maintainers (eric, takuo et al) and maybe from other free distributions. The last group is not accessible to me, since I have no connections to other projects.
Maybe someone can help out on this?

BTW, I don't think they can claim the common words 'bird' and 'fox' their own, so 'freebird' would be valid as much as 'freefox' IMHO. The only name I am unsure of is 'freezilla'. But maybe we can work around this problem by naming it freexilla :)
