yes?  Has there been a firefox exposure since Edgy stopped getting security
updates?  Do you think there will be a _real_ one (rather than just a
potentiality) against the current Edgy version of FF in the next two years? 
How many people who are still running Edgy on a non-server computer (so
it's presumably over a year old already), will still have that computer in
two years?  I believe the exposure is negligible.  Heck, I believe the
exposure of a server is negligible, but obviously greater than that of a
pure client.
