Does anyone know why it was added, and if we may remove it?
If it is desirable we should ask the Ubuntu Mozilla team to repackage
it, as its reason for removal seems to be more that it got caught in a
shuffle of xulrunner versions than anything else:
* In Ubuntu it was built from the xulrunner (1.8) source.
* In Debian it is CURRENTLY built from the xulrunner (1.9.1) source.
* In Ubuntu the remaining xulrunner sources have versioned names:
xulrunner-1.9.1 and -1.9.2.
