The handful of people who maintain Communicator can switch over to Mozilla, the "horribly doomed project" in the eyes of everyone but we few, and do marginal amounts of good beyond what's already being done.

Or they can continue to maintain Communicator, fixing bugs and maintaining market share.

I would personally choose the latter, until Mozilla is finished, because if there's no Netscape market share left by the time Mozilla is released (something that the Netscape releases DO help with), then we're basically screwed (no one can fight an uphill battle with Microsoft and win; the best you can hope for is a victory when you're on an equal footing with them).
