I would also note (conveniently, one might say, but I believe accurately) that the browser market is a uniquely competitive one, as far as distribution-packaged software goes. What other distro package sees such widespread use, where time-to-market matters as much? (I'm speaking to the benefits of quick iteration through in-tree, lightly-patched third-party code now, not to the backport approval process.) I just skimmed my Applications menu in Fedora, and I can't see anything where new functionality and features have such high demand as for browsers.

Dan Witte, from Mozilla, has been terrific about feeding back libffi patches over the past few months. But from what I recall they mostly have to do with building libffi on Windows and OS/2. I don't remember anything that would prevent them from using the system libffi on Linux.
In any case, this sudden batch of contributions from Dan and Mozilla is appreciated.
