Hi John!

OK, this was discussed a bit in #ubuntu-devel. Instead of playing
pingpong and rename the packages back and forth, backporting the
current breezy package would be a clean solution that does not require
to manually upload packages to hoary-backports.

Can you please try to build Breezy's firefox on Hoary and tell us the
necessary changes? Supposedly we need to add some alternative build
dependencies to account for the missing cairo packages in Hoary, etc.
