Like these?

And let's not even think about the can of worms the ARM patches cause that
they removed from their code after Mycroft not agreeing on a license change
they wanted to enforce - and that are basically impossible to write
differently (i.e. I could clean room those changes with some other developer,
and the result would look like a verbatim copy of the removed changes)

If you look at the dates of the two PRs referenced above you will understand
why people stop feeding back changes and just keep on adding patches to

        Maybe we could add a note to the firefox MESSAGE asking people
        to vote on some of the mozilla PRs...
