I don't think that really matters - the real point of the
platform-desktop split is to indicate which modules are rock-solid
API/ABI stable, not to dictate dependencies.

I'd be interested in the other points danilo made, namely what its
user-visible name should be and whether it can interoperate with
mozilla/gre, but this is really cool stuff. From the specification sent
to the list it's got my vote, of course I'll have to try the
implementation first :-)
