Sorry, I was having problems with my home workstation and have been a
little lax about hints over the past few days.  The hint has already
been activated, and will take effect tonight (so mozilla will propagate
with tomorrow's dinstall).

As long as galeon and epiphany-browser declare both versioned-depends
and versioned-conflicts on mozilla-browser, manual intervention will be
needed whenever those relationships cannot be satisfied by moving the
affected packages into testing separately.  Since these versioned
relationships take the place of a mozilla shared library package whose
name changes when the ABI changes, I don't see that there's any way
around this issue; you would get only incremental benefits from using an
actual shared library package whose name changes, as I imagine the ABI
mozilla exports *will* usually change with each major release.
