Actually, looking at the iceape script again, there's much more than the
DSP stuff in it to port... But that could be added to the original
script, I guess... Another problem is that seamonkey is still using old
stuff for that, while firefox and thunderbird have evolved a lot. I'm not
sure the seamonkey scripts don't have the problems that disappeared in
firefox and thunderbird...

Anyways, I'll take a look into this...
