AFAIK, the idea is to use xulrunner 1.9 in lenny. Nevertheless, the
patch I developed for liferea might indeed break 1.8 builds (haven't
checked though). But that doesn't mean that this is not possible. I
plan to do a cleanup round of my xul 1.9 patches starting next
week. Once i have done that, I'll submit it (most likely through a
proxy) and give infos on whether its good for 1.8 or not.
