No -- it's not competing against Mozilla -- the problem I meant, was
exactly what you're saying. Galeon, Mozilla nightlies and Nautilus all
expect to find a working Moz, with such-and-such a version and
such-and-such a binary interface, living as a set of .so's in /usr/lib or
/usr/local/mozilla... and that just ain't gonna happen ;)
The interface to Moz components is very version-dependent, because it's
all binary, C++ and dynamic-linking-based, and it's fragile.
At least Nautilus doesn't coredump when it finds the wrong Moz version
installed, like Galeon does. :(

oops! I wonder if the black hat community have written DAV scanners yet?
