Mozilla Mothballed now, is a Seamonkey package a possibility?

  As mentioned below by Joey from Debian weekly news, I personally would 
much appreciate Debian Developers/ package maintainers to consider 
discussing replacing the Mozilla browser , now superseded and mothballed 
by the Mozilla foundation and replaced by the Seamonkey Council, and now 
I think Seamonkey 1.02 is the stable release.
This email was written in a Seamonkey 1.0 cmg, installed on a  Kanotix 
box, but a Deb package would be better perhaps, in the Debian repositories.
I greatly hope this will be considered soon in at Debian.
Thanks too Joey
All the Best in there
