So we can switch to recording the lib dependencies in libs now? I  
think this would help to let firefox do some SSO stuff with kerberos  
(loading it as a plugin causes it to moan because some depending lib  
is not loaded, bsam@ should be able to explain the technical details).


Nobody wants constructive criticism.
It's all we can do to put up with constructive praise.
