So instead of improving the appearance of, say, the XUL toolkit, you'd
prefer rewriting Firefox and Thunderbird in a completely different toolkit
(or, shudder, dropping Firefox in favor of a more "native" browser such as
Epiphany). Fortunately, that's just not going to happen because, simply,
the ROI would be below zero.
