We can't support Mozilla suite. As we cannot ship known vulnerable, 
unsupported software all software build-depending on mozilla-dev that
cannot be fixed to use xulrunner-dev must be removed or drop the
functionality using mozilla-dev (as we did for OO.org's address book
in a DSA; current OO.org uses libxul).
