That's not a very useful list. The Mozilla core has a bad record for
accepting patches and even if they do, there are lots of older versions
that needing them. xview-lib is just dead upstream, so not very useful
either. Chromium is similar yet different to Mozilla in that upstream
has expressed a clear disinterest in anything not Windows, Linux or OSX.
