Very nice tool - thanks for the pointer! If I understand correctly
what it was telling me last night, it looks like mozilla-browser 1.2.1
depends on libc6, which conflicts with a bunch of other packages, so
pulling in Mozilla 1.2 would also force the upgrade of several other
packages to unstable (including some pretty basic ones like gcc).
Since I use this machine pretty regularly for doing other things in
addition to tinkering :-) I wound up shying away from the upgrade.
I'll probably wait until more of it percolates into testing, or maybe
finally dedicate the time to getting mutt and an alternative browser
