If you mean the Fedorahosted liveusb-creator, that looks useful to
have in Debian for non-technical users. If upstream could be made
build-time flexible about distros, it could be useful to both Debian
or Tails. Our current methods for writing ISO images to CD aren't
exactly user-friendly.

I think the iceweasel-source binary package idea was the most likely
to work in the shortish term and I believe that the issues blocking
iceweasel-source are solved now so you might want to submit a wishlist
bug as a reminder about that.

Apparently the Tor Browser folks have replaced vidalia with a
Firefox-based Tor controller called Tor Launcher, you might want to
sync with their choices.
