See http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2010/06/msg00535.html
and subsequent messages.

Are you volunteering to fix xulrunner 1.9.2 on ia64, adapt all build rdeps
of xulrunner-dev and libmozjs-dev, and package pyxpcom to replace the missing
python-xpcom from xulrunner1.9.2 ? (since it has many rdeps)

All that before the freeze ?
