It's not far off that. You should only have to change it in fingers-of-two-hands places at most; anything else is a bug. And we've committed to documenting the exact procedure. Remember, Netscape did this regularly to make Netscape releases, so we are set up for this. I talked to the other licensing guy at the Foundation tonight; we are going to look at getting someone to confirm and document the process.

Given a source tarball, I would estimate 10 minutes work - perhaps a bit more if there's a graphic or two with the word Firefox in it to replace, and you count the time making new graphics. Hopefully, that's easy enough. :-)
