I can see that, but since we're specifically talking about slow machines, I 
think "priority" packages should be evaluated individually on what value they 
provide under that criterion.  E.g., $BIGPKG is slow, and slow apps are not 
going to be my first choices to run on slow machines.  I don't object to 
$BIGPKG being built, but wouldn't necessarily list it a priority.  Which 
dependencies (of www/firefox-gtk2) are you most interested in?

If you want to include a GUI browser, I'd pick www/dillo.  Xaw/*tif/FLTK are 
going to more useful on the low end.
