I agree here.  I think it's fine to have it install as firefox (with a
firefox3 compat link for people used to it).  I am generally opposed to
renaming package directories without compelling reasons - it messes up
pkg_rolling-replace.  For firefox I think it makes sense to just have
the version in the package directory.

The rest of the plan sounds good.  My experience was that switching to 3
From 2 was painless, much more so than I expected.
