Sure thing. Too bad one side was not that interested in the dialog for a long time (still isn't as far as I can tell) and the other side has given up and said "fuck them" because it got tired of wasting its time trying to get communication to happen.

Most gecko embeddors don't have this urgent need to put hacks in the back end, so they should be fine with the GRE (and the performance boost from static linking should be a startup boost only (ben? hard data?) -- most embedding apps already start plenty fast, unlike SeaMonkey).
