And the rebranding work has already been done by Debian. We should ask them 
whether they're OK with us using the "iceweasel" name even if we apply 
different patches than they do. If they're OK with that, we could just use 
their patch as is, if not, we'd pick another name, but their patch would 
still point us to the exact places to change.
