Or keep mozilla in volatile and not in stable.  But since mozilla is
already shipped in sarge this will be an etch issue (as I also hope
volatile will be official from etch on).  I just can't see a package
being deleted from sarge, imho the best we can do right now is send
out DSA's and point to volatile for fixes.
