	Given the latest firefox/mozilla/thunderbird vulnerabilities I figured
it'd be a good thing to take a look at updating those packages.  Well,
actually just firefox, since that's what I use.  (yes, I know there's a
freeze right now)

	Those need the 9.1 version of the suse libraries.  I was thinking
about changing the default linux emul packages to be those, and adding
a variable (LINUX_USE_SUSE73) to use the old ones if necessary.

	So far, the new libraries seem to work ok for me, but I'm using -current
and 2.0.  Does anyone know if they work on 1.6.x?  What has other
people's experience with the stability of the new suse packages been?
