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

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
