In the interests of getting these security updates up quickly, I'm
taking the liberty to rebuild galeon against the new firefox (I've had
a fair bit of experience rebuilding this application before) .  I'm
currently doing a scratch build in koji, let me know if this isn't OK
with anyone.

I'll also do Miro if nobody screams at me.

(PS.  I can't see any pending builds in koji and/or CVS action that
would imply that the current maintainers of these packages are aware
of the change firefox at the moment.)
