before we start, I would like to raise an important question:

Can we find common ground on whether its ok to ship "forked"
mozillas or not? I just can imagine that there are distributors (maybe
even debian) that would like to ship iceweasel as an exact copy of
firefox so it would be wise to give them what they need (in order to
prevent yet another fork).

As a compromise I would support to look for ways to make your changes
more or less optional. IMO, it would be ok to ship iceweasel sources
in a way that enables the gnuzilla specific developments by
default. However, I would really like to see those changes being done
in a fashion which allows downstream-distributors to switch them off
(e.g. by configure switch).

What do you think?
